Public Domain Surveys
O'Neil Associates produces regular
reports on a variety of topics of broad public interest. Many of these
have been published or broadcast in such national media as the Wall Street
Journal, Nightline, ABC Nightly News, USA Today, NBC Nightly News, Good
Morning America, the Washington Post Weekly Magazine, and National Public
Radio as well as hundreds of reports in professional publications and
In addition to the written press releases and reports cited below, Dr. O'Neil has been an analyst and commentator on local television since 1980. Videos of several of his most recent analyses and commentaries are available by clicking on this link.
While many of our proprietary studies are national in scope,
we have a special interest in the community in which we live. O'Neil Associates
has tracked public opinion across the Valley, Arizona, and the nation
since 1981. To be healthy, public debate must be informed - this is why
we commit our resources to measuring opinions on the political and social
issues people care and talk about. For this reason we have committed ourselves
to pro bono research projects intended for the public domain in our home
community of metropolitan Phoenix, Arizona. While, the vast majority of
our 1,300+ projects that we have conducted over the last 20 years have
been for private clients, the Valley Influentials Poll and the Valley
Monitor are described below along with several other projects that are
in the public domain.
The Valley Influentials Polls are
ongoing surveys with community elites in the Phoenix Metropolitan area.
As such, they provide insight into the perceptions of this key group of
community leaders, and often serve as a harbinger of the attitudes of
the more general population.
These are general community surveys
of the general population or voters in either the Phoenix Metropolitan
area or the state of Arizona.
Business Ethics Survey
of the most interesting and significant recent projects conducted by ONeil
Associates was the National Business Ethics Survey which was fielded for
the Ethics Resource Center in Washington DC.
