Secondary research methodology largely underlies our policy evaluation studies. Our works spans the social impact sector; with key focus emerging as health, education, and water & sanitation
Background research and research strategy:
The team conducts extensive background research and seeks necessary sectoral guidance from experts. The internal execution strategy is worked upon and the overall strategy is shared with the client.
Survey Tool Design:
We design our tools after thorough background research while factoring in budget, time constraints, respondent behaviour and methods used for administering the survey, with the goal of engaging the respondent to develop quality insights. Opinion of field supervisors is sought to ensure the applicability and reliability of the tool.
Field Planning and Training:
A detailed time line and execution plan is prepared for the field, which is strictly adhered to. The data set is always obtained and prepared from reliable and recommended sources. Outline India is often credited for their timeliness and quality control measure. The internal team conducts intensive training and mock sessions and survey tools are revised based on pilot results. For qualitative studies this measure ensures that the cultural mores present in linguistic and symbolic communications are not lost in translation. During the training process field workers are specifically encouraged and trained to take additional notes which are then incorporated into the intensive analysis.
Primary data collection and field work:
We recruit field workers who have a linguistic and cultural familiarity and relevant experience in the sector. Based on the project needs and the sensitivity we arrive at an optimal team mix. We take special care when recruiting for sensitive studies focusing on sensitive themes and/or subjects. Daily end of the day meetings are held in the field to address issues that may have arisen during the fieldwork.The data collection team plays an important role in the translation of tools and the translation of data due to their close engagement with the field. The internal research team sits with the field team before and during the analysis to get better insights given their direct and extensive engagement with the field.
