Who administers the survey?
All of the financial data inputted into the NAED PAR Report® survey is
handled 100% by an independent third party research provider called
Industry Insights. NAED will never see the individual financial data.
For nearly 35 years, Industry Insights has been serving the research
needs of trade and professional associations. They process over 100,000
survey forms every year that are similar to the NAED PAR Report® and
boast an unblemished confidentiality record. Industry Insights
guarantees that your data will be held strictly confidential.
Industry Insights was hand selected by a group of NAED distributors
serving on the NAED's Performance Analysis Committee with the assistance
of consulting firm Brown, Smith and Wallace. Scott A. Hackworth, CPA,
Sr VP, will lead the Industry Insights survey team for NAED. Mr.
Hackworth leads many of Industry Insights' largest and most rigorous
research projects. His responsibilities primarily include designing and
implementing research strategies that will provide reliable and useful
information. Over the past 14 years, his studies have been featured in
National Geographic, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York
Times, the Economist, and numerous other national and international news
programs and publications.
