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.

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.

 

Testimonials

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).

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.
