June 13, 2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Edison Research’s date of incorporation.
To say the least, we have come a long way over this time. From our beginning in a tiny one-room interior rental space in a co-working location in Edison, New Jersey to the campus we are fortunate enough to enjoy today, Edison has established itself as the worldwide leader in election-day surveys and research about all things related to audio. In the span of those 25 years we have witnessed the birth of mainstream internet usage, streaming audio, podcasts, and we have been tracking it all.
We have performed exit polls for every major American election for a consortium of television networks since the California governor recall election in 2003 – the Schwarzenegger election – and now we are also doing the vote count for the National Election Pool as well. We began in 1994 with two employees, and now our company’s more than 50 employees participate in a thriving practice based in Somerville, New Jersey, having worked in 66 countries around the world.
From paper surveys on the streets of Berlin to iPads in remote locations in Myanmar, we continue to pursue knowledge in the realm of social science and help our clients better understand the world and their businesses in meaningful and productive ways. We have built a team of dedicated researchers who work tirelessly to provide our clients with the highest-quality research. We are pleased that our research is often the accepted standard and is quoted throughout the world by journalists, financial analysts, consultants, and political scientists. We could not have imagined such an exciting time in the growth and changes in digital media, as well as the interest and importance of American elections and others around the world.
Many thanks to our research partners, employees, clients, and those who continue to use our work and incorporate social science research in the general knowledge base for the greater good. We are fueled by our research findings in the past 25 years as we look forward to many milestones in the future.
