The Ochs Center is the only organization in the Chattanooga region that provides a full array of research and data analysis services for local non-profit organizations.

At the Ochs Center, we collect and analyze data from government agencies or non-profit programs; we conduct research on public policy issues, large and small; we design and analyze public opinion surveys and conduct roundtables and focus groups; we lead detailed program evaluations, using data to assess what’s succeeding and what’s failing; we conduct economic impact analyses to assess how different organizations contribute to the local economy; we conduct budgetary and operational reviews of non-profit and government programs; and we are able to assess community conditions at the neighborhood level.
