A greater understanding of the social issues of central British Columbia is key to the continued growth and development of the Prince George region. The Institute for Social Research and Evaluation (ISRE) is a research institute located at the University of Northern British Columbia dedicated to examining these issues.

A number of local partners are involved with the Institute to ensure its work is applied at the community level. These partnerships are key to the Institute's sustainability, as well as its ability to conduct action oriented social research and program evaluations.

The primary research and training agenda of the Institute is to conduct two community-wide, social surveys annually, with a Spring survey covering general quality of life issues and a fall survey focused more specifically on special topics determined by the Institute's partners. These surveys would normally each be sent to about 2000 people. The accumulated data from the annual surveys will serve as a baseline for the Prince George region to measure changes in areas such as population health, neighbourhood transitions, and satisfaction with public services and private enterprise. This data will also help in forecasting changes in the social, economic, and political climate of the City. As a result, information will be available to aid in the development of businesses and needed public services, and it will be possible to establish realistic targets for such issues as health standards.
