The co:census team is your collaborator partner in thinking about what does equity in engagement look like.

Dr. Pierre Vigilance

Founder & Principal @ HealthUp

We provide strategic population health advisory services to clients working to improve community health outcomes. [co:census] was the only company that came to mind when we wanted to bring community voices to a conversation about accessing health resources. Their easy to use text-based platform, innovative use of AI, strong analytics capabilities, and nimble problem-solving skills made them the perfect partner from help creating the survey to brainstorming on distribution and trouble shooting reporting challenges. The whole team is thoughtful, easy to work with, and genuinely concerned about the success of your project. I look forward to working with them again.

Paige Miller

Senior Communications Manager @ SFCTA

I appreciate the full service co:census offers — their team became a partner with us from start to finish. The fact that they helped refine our texting survey questions, provided translations, and helped us analyze the results was phenomenally helpful.
