Data Collectors

Quantitative Enumerators administer questionnaires and tools to target populations and enter this data into a mobile data entry platform. Qualitative Research Assistants facilitate and record qualitative sessions with key research populations to uncover underlying attitudes, beliefs, and norms. Prior to deployment all enumerators receive a comprehensive training workshop covering best practices for data collectors, research ethics, child protection, and the administration of the research tools.

Who are Data Collectors?

Our Data Collectors usually have some experience in previous research studies on a similar intervention or research domain. Quantitative Enumerators are normally recent graduates looking for early experiences in applied research. Qualitative Research Assistants are typically more experienced development professionals with significant experience in facilitating qualitative sessions.
