What Your Agency Can Expect
ACTIONABLE POLICY RECOMMENDATIONS
We deliver more than just graphs and statistics. We interpret data to support policy hypotheses and actions. We put numbers to action, predict the likelihood for adoption, and objectively measure the feasibility of future programs.
We coordinate responses across multiple regions and use validated survey instruments to make sure your questions are clear and precise and respect cultural norms and sensitivities.
REAL INSIGHTS FROM REAL PEOPLE
We work with local, university-trained enumerators that have direct access to communities and can get reliable responses quickly. Our trusted local partners can interview the exact participant profiles you seek.
STAY ON BUDGET
We have a strong track record for securing international grants. Most grants dictate the budget available for external research. We work with you to develop your proposal and work within your budget.
How We Can Help Your Agency
Localized Surveys to Target Hard-to-Reach and Disconnected Communities
We have a network of local enumerators specially trained in socio-demographic research techniques who collect validated information from communities affected by extreme climate events, people of all literacy levels, and hard-to-reach places around the world.
When online surveys are not an option, our enumerators can reach out by phone, or conduct in-person interviews to fill your survey instrument.

Results We're Proud Of
Our Easy Onboarding Process
Your custom analysis in 5 simple steps.
1. Initial Consultation
During the discovery phase, we will review you research needs and prepare a custom proposal outlining the methodology, timeline and budget.
2. Audience Discovery
We will develop a strategy that maximizes response variability from a diverse geographical, environmental, and social settings --including urban vs. rural; and developed vs. developing regions.
3. Survey and interview design
We will develop a survey that reflects a mix of communication channels (including mailing lists and social media) and input methods (on computers and mobile devices) ideal for your survey population. We will incorporate logic flows to minimize survey fatigue and maximize response rates.
4. Online and field response collection
We will actively monitor response rates online and with our local enumerators. Weekly updates ensures sure that responses are error-free and representative of the study's population. We will include a final report on observation and challenges identified from the field.
5. Analysis and streamline results
We will develop a clear, detailed summary of the results of your data analysis. Our final report will include detailed recommendations tailored to your policy actions. If necessary, we can collaborate with your team to co-write the full report to meet your stakeholders' requirements.
Our initial idea to engage a contractor was to ensure a wide dissemination of a survey. However, it quickly became clear that Kai Analytics could play a much greater role. Not only did Kevin used his network to ensure a high number of responses in a very short time; he also provided large parts of both quantitative and qualitative analysis, which greatly increased the value of our study. Throughout the intensive process, Kevin flexibly made himself available, and also demonstrated a great team working spirit.
Senior Researcher, Global Center on Adaptation
Kai Analytics helped us with aggregating data for a research project looking at developing the capacity of coffee-growing MSMEs (micro, small and medium enterprises) in the Philippines. The project specifically looked at the applicability of blockchain to create transparency in the supply chain process for small scale coffee growers in Sito Belis (northern region of the Philippines).
Project Manager, Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada
Kai Analytics went above and beyond while closely respecting project timeframes. Not only did they support our open-ended question analytics, but they also offered advice on best practice for survey representation, results design and outline, and report writing, in a multinational context. Kai Analytics was a key partner of the Alliance this year.
