Visitor sociology

As the Bpi does not keep files of those registered, it regularly carries out qualitative surveys to generate information about the profile, practices and representations of its users. Since 2003 in particular, every three years it carries out a barometric study with its audiences

See all the studies carried out by the Bpi on its professional website.
