The Wyoming Survey & Analysis Center at the University of Wyoming seeks to provide clear, accurate, and useful information to decision-makers through applied social science research, scientific polling, information technology services, and rigorous program evaluation. Without bias and with the highest standards of validity, WYSAC collects, manages, analyzes, and reports data for public and private sectors in Wyoming and throughout the nation.

WYSAC has four research areas. By Executive Order, WYSAC serves as Wyoming’s statistical analysis center for criminal justice research. The Center for Criminal Justice Research (CJR) at WYSAC collects and analyzes criminal justice data to enable effective planning, practice, and policy development for the State of Wyoming. The CJR is also active nationally as a member of the Justice Research and Statistics Association.    

The Center for Information Technology Services specializes in web-based applications, database management, and website development. We create case management programs, desktop applications for data management, prevention and evaluation data entry systems, and interactive online data visualizations.  

The Center for Research and Evaluation conducts studies to inform programming, funding, and policy decisions, especially in the areas of public health, substance abuse prevention, and education. We collect qualitative and quantitative data, compile administrative records, conduct statistical analyses, interpret findings, write reports and fact sheets, conduct needs assessments, create evaluation plans and logic models, and write grant applications.

The Survey Research Center (SRC) specializes in survey design, administration, sampling, and data analysis. The SRC conducts phone, mail, internet, and mixed-mode surveys using current technologies and WYSAC’s in-house call center. The SRC has expertise in weighting survey data, conducting statistical analysis of the collected data, and creating technical reports and PowerPoint presentations of the results.

WYSAC offers paid employment for students who are looking for experience in social science research. Contact us for additional information, or search for current job openings on UW’s website.
