aQity Research & Insights Celebrates its Fourth Anniversary!
In 2015, aQity Research & Insights started with a group of researchers who had worked together for several years, providing customized research solutions and insights to a valued group of both corporate and public clients.
Today, this team -- which has doubled in size -- continues to deliver creative and solid insights to a growing number of valued client partnerships. We continue to "own" our clients' problems and goals, and continually seek new approaches which translate data into action. This past year has included:
In addition, our in-house executive interviewers continue to deliver critical insights from key decision-makers and hard-to-reach audiences, including C-suite executives, investment professionals, and consultants, along with ultra high net worth investors. They remain experts in establishing rapport, demonstrating knowledge of technical industry issues, and delivering the highest response rates.
We continue to be very proud of our team and our work, and most of all our valued partnership with each and every client. Bring on the next four years!

aQity Presents Final Recreational/Participation Data at the 2019 IAPD Legislative Conference
Jeff Andreasen, President of aQity Research, presented results for our analysis of facility usage and program participation data to member agencies of the Illinois Association of Park Districts at the IAPD’s Legislative Conference on May 1st, in Springfield, IL.
aQity collected actual trended usage data from the IAPD's member agencies which include park districts, parks and recreation departments, forest preserve districts, conservation districts, and special recreation associations throughout the state. Our research quantified the millions of residents who use these facilities, participate in their programs, attend their events, and benefit from scholarships and discounts available to lower-income households.
Our research has been cited by state legislators as having a big impact on conveying and quantifying "in real numbers" the importance and value that these agencies represent through the recreational and fitness opportunities they provide.
aQity is very proud of our long-standing relationships and work for these parks and open space agencies.
