ORU The Online Research Unit

The Online Research Unit (ORU) is one of Australia’s leading research organizations, providing social and market research solutions for many private companies, as well as Local, State, and Federal Governments. Their surveys and polls are opinion based and cover such topics as government issues, the trialing of new goods and services, and the improvement of existing goods and services. The ORU are members of the Association of Market & Social Research Organizations (AMSRO) and European Association of Opinion and Marketing Research (ESOMAR) and as such, comply with Australian and Global industry standards and guidelines.

Participation in their surveys and polls gives you the opportunity to have your opinions heard, making a considerable difference on consumer goods and services, as well as government and social policies. It also gives you an opportunity to be rewarded for your efforts, as the ORU conducts bi-monthly prize draws for $5000 in cash, and an additional draw for $2000 worth of gift vouchers from some of Australia’s leading retailers. Each survey you complete will earn you an entry into both of these draws.

To become a panel member of The Online Research Unit you must be 14 years or older; and if under 18, you will require parental/guardian consent. The ORU are mindful of the protection of minors and have therefore created a dedicated panel for 14-17 year olds. Registration is as simple as filling in and submitting an online form, after which you will be required to submit personal details to help match you to appropriate studies.
