Arbitron, an international media and market research firm serving the media – radio, television, cable, online radio, advertisers and advertising agencies – in the US and Europe for the last 60 years, has set up its fully-owned subsidiary, Arbitron India, in Kochi. The centre was formally inaugurated on January 5, 2009, by Steve Morris, Chairman, President and CEO, Arbitron Inc, at Tejomaya, L&T's new IT Park located inside Infopark in Kochi.

According to a company release, the Kochi centre had been set up as a world class facility for software engineering, R&D and product development to support Arbitron’s vision to serve the media and market research industry worldwide. Arbitron India will also play a key role in the development of technology and providing operational support for the implementation of research firm’s flagship service, Portable People Meter (PPM), and other products, which are being installed throughout the US and other countries.
