The Cambridgeshire Research Group provides a wide variety of information on the people and economy of Cambridgeshire in order to help plan services for the county. We work closely with many service groups to provide data and information on projects, surveys, consultations and bids going on throughout the Council.

Our services

With the current financial pressures, all public sector organisations need to review how they work and what services they can offer their communities.

This is where the Cambridgeshire Research Group can assist.

We recognise that good quality information is essential to help officers make better informed decisions at every level.  It is important that information used to inform, manage and plan activities is accurate, reliable and where possible easily comparable to others.  There also needs to be sufficient operational data to ensure performance can be managed and early signs given where things are not on track.

The Cambridgeshire Research Group offers a complete set of business intelligence solutions for the public sector, private sector, voluntary organisations and the local community.
