What is Community Research Partners?

CRP is a non-profit research, evaluation, and data center based in Columbus, Ohio, with a mission to strengthen communities through data, information, and knowledge. We conduct social and demographic data collection and analysis; manage focus groups, interviews and surveys; and perform thorough programmatic evaluations. We then use all of the data at our disposal to develop concise, usable reports for a wide range of audiences. With every project, our goal is to partner with our clients to turn data into information that can guide organizational and community decision-making.


CRP is a partnership of the City of Columbus, United Way of Central Ohio, The Ohio State University, and the Franklin County Commissioners. CRP is also central Ohio’s data intermediary, and a partner in the Urban Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership.
