We have been working for some time to ensure that all of our services and systems are GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) compliant. We have updated our privacy policies accordingly, both for Delve Research and for our consumer panel service Ask Me Pay Me. We have carried out a full data inventory for all of our systems, and have liaised with our technology suppliers to ensure that all of our data protection and privacy systems meet or exceed the requirements of GDPR. We will remain, as always, vigilant with respect to data protection and protecting personal privacy. For any queries about Delve Research and GDPR please contact us directly.
Commencing January 2018 we are pleased to announce that we are now using Qualtrics as our principal survey platform. This is an exciting development which brings best-in-class survey deployment and real-time analytical capabilities to our range of services.

The Central Statistics Office of Ireland has today (June 21st 2017) released the results of the 2015-2016 Household Budget Survey. See the CSO press release here for details.
This is a great resource for anyone with an interest in the Irish market for consumer goods and services. The data supplied allows us to get an accurate picture of consumer spending at a very detailed level - this release has a very useful set of interactive tables here.
Paired with 2016 Census data we can get excellent market size estimates for individual products and services at local, regional and national levels.
Trends in growth can be identified by comparing results with previous waves of the Household Budget Survey - the last wave was in 2009-2010 (links to PDF summary).
If you would like any guidance or assistance in using these statistics please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org who will be happy to help.
Our next scheduled national omnibus survey takes place in the final week of June 2017. This is a very cost effective means of accessing a nationally representative sample of Irish consumers. If you would like to include a section on this survey please drop an email to email@example.com
Results from our recent survey of members of the public on Dublin's College Green are now available at http://www.dublincity.ie/imaginecollegegreen (top section). Commissioned by Dublin City Council, this project set out to gather the views of the public on options for a proposed civic space at College Green. We were delighted to facilitate this exercise.
The latest edition of our online omnibus survey has just gone live, with 9 happy clients on board. It was launched on Thursday and our initial results will be available to clients after the weekend. Our survey research clients are getting access to a nationally representative sample of Irish adults at a fraction of the cost of a full scale survey - and you can too.
We run these omnibus surveys regularly throughout the year so please get in touch and we'd be delighted to have you involved on our next wave.
We trust weather forecasters more than the police, and more than TV newsreaders. According to our latest poll, we don't trust politicians very much at all! As a nation we are quite trusting, relative to our neighbours in the UK. We'll be tracking this measure on future surveys to monitor for the impact of the "fake news" phenomenon here in Ireland.
Is there something you would like to ask on our next national survey?
Call 022 25088 or email firstname.lastname@example.org now to have your questions included - it's the most cost effective way to generate reliable consumer insights at a national level.
Wishing all of our clients, colleagues and friends a very happy holiday season, with best wishes for a wonderful 2017.
Our latest national survey found that 58% of adults feel a win for Donald Trump in the upcoming election would have a negative impact on Ireland. Just 10% felt a Trump win would have a positive impact on Ireland. In contrast, 34% felt that a win for Hillary Clinton would be positive for Ireland. A further 54% felt that a Clinton win would have no impact on Ireland - suggesting that the Irish feel a Clinton win would represent policy continuity in the White House towards Ireland.
