What is MRP?

Our analytics stack is powered by an advanced data modelling technique called MRP, short for multi-level regression with post-stratification. MRP allows you to use a national or regional poll to predict opinion within local areas and precise demographic groups. This helps you determine what issues matter most to your target audience—and how best to communicate your message. So you can run campaigns rooted in local and regional dynamics, not national averages.

Use cases

Get 10x more data from surveys using MRP

national legislatures

Parliamanetary constituencies

Use a national poll to predict opinion at constituency level (e.g. Bristol South, Stockton North).


Local authority districts

Turn a regional poll into granular data about local districts (e.g. London boroughs).


Consumer segmentation

Use your existing consumer data to predict behaviour at a more granular level (e.g. healthy snacks preference for young professional women in north-east England).

How MRP works

Get unique local-level insights

Model opinion and other responses
The first step is using a survey to build a multi-level regression model that predicts opinion or other responses from certain variables, normally demographics.

Weighting by relevant population count
The next step is weighting (i.e. post-stratifying) your results by the relevant population count to get estimates at the target population level (e.g. constituency).
