About Us

Founded in 1980 at Siena College in New York's Capital District, the Siena Research Institute (SRI) conducts regional, statewide and national surveys on business, economic, political, voter, social, academic and historical issues. The surveys include both expert and public opinion polls. Now in Our 30th Year!

The results of SRI surveys have been published in major regional and national newspapers, including The Wall StreetJournal and The New York Times, as well as in scholarly journals, books and an encyclopedia. Survey results are regularly featured on local and network television and radio.

SRI conducts the Siena New York Poll, a monthly snapshot poll of registered voters from throughout New York State on timely political topics, and the New York State Consumer Confidence Index, a monthly look at New Yorkers’ willingness to spend. SRI also produces a quarterly consumer confidence for the regions around Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, New York City, Rochester and Syracuse.

SRI subscribes to the American Association of Public Opinion Research (AAPOR) Code of Professional Ethics and Practices.

SRI is frequently commissioned to conduct surveys for organizations, businesses, and local and state government agencies. For more information contact us at (518) 783-2901 / 783-2512 (
