Understanding the Lifestyle, Entertainment, and Sports Industries

Our roots lie in sports. Back in 1994, we launched the first syndicated study on sports, the ESPN Sports Poll. Today, our expertise has expanded to a deep understanding of free time in general, specifically the lifestyle, entertainment, and sports industries.

We leverage our understanding of survey research and content expertise, using syndicated and custom research solutions to help you get to know and understand your consumer community and fan base through the Luker LENS Poll, Sports Poll and Sports Poll Kids.
