Simmons – The Measurement Sciences Company.

We use Measurement Sciences to provide real insights into consumers and their behavior.
At its core, Simmons Research is a Measurement Sciences company. We believe that anything can be measured effectively with the right measurement science. Measurement science is the juxtaposition of measurement technology and measurement methodology.

Measurement technologies include passive measurement, mass-scale collection, granular collection etc. Measurement methodologies focus on appropriate sample design, weighting, calibration, validation etc. By closely overlaying these two, we apply measurement science to help brands and content owners know their consumers and gain a deep understanding of their consumer profiles.
