Audience Data Services is a unit of the Audience Research Department which was set up to provide a range of analyses of programmes and programming for RTÉ's external clients, including programme makers commissioned by RTÉ. Production companies requiring a more detailed analysis of their programme's performance (over and above the basic rating information provided by Independent Productions) can contact the Audience Research Department and discuss their needs. In the light of the client's requirements, a formal costed proposal is faxed to the client to address his/her stated needs. Information is provided either by way of a formal report or more informally as appropriate. Costs relate to the extent of the research involved to furnish the information required. For more information you can contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
