“Assisting the Citizens and Agencies since 1964 by providing Research Services”.
As the research division of the Department of Sociology, the Bureau of Sociological Research (BOSR) has provided a range of research services for faculty, departments, administrative units, and students at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln since it was established in 1964. The BOSR actively works with UNL investigators on the design, implementation and completion of survey research projects. The Bureau of oldh1Sociological Research also provides research services for state, government and local organizations outside of the University. Information collected by the Bureau is helpful for program evaluation, budgeting justifications, and planning purposes.
The Bureau has conducted national, regional and local surveys using a variety of survey research methods. Our professional staff has experience working with a number of contemporary data collection methodologies and our involvement in conferences and organizations related to social research has enabled us to keep abreast of changes and trends in survey methodology and this has directly benefited the Bureau by leading to higher quality data collection and greater efficiency.
