ORC Research Project Win

Opinion Research Corporation is to expand its social research into Europe with new contracts for Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Communities. The agency has recently announced it has been commissioned to conduct research projects focusing on EU welfare measures for the region.

ORC believes that its new Eurostat contracts are the result of a successful drive for European social research work. As John F. Short, chairman and chief executive officer, explained, "We are delighted to have gained the confidence of Eurostat for this important pan-European project. One of our objectives in the acquisition of Macro International was to expand Macro’s public sector business into Europe. This has now become a reality."

Opinion Research Corporation already has a strong reputation from its 25 years of international social research. To date, clients have included the US Federal Government and The World Bank.
