Our methodology

Surveys

We implement all types of quantitative surveys, using various modalities, including in-person and phone interviews, appointment-based and central location interviewing. We select the optimal approach for each project, considering the target demographic, research aims, and logistical considerations. We consistently aim for high-quality, representative data, providing precise insights to underpin your organization's evidence-based decision-making.

Focus Group Discussions

We are well-versed in conducting all types of focus groups involving hard-to-reach populations and difficult segments, such as children and people with vulnerabilities about complex and sensitive topics, including GBV, Violence Against Children, coping mechanisms, sexual and reproductive health, and others.

Case Studies

We have solid experience in creating case studies that include detailed information about a specific person, group, or situation, telling stories and bringing voices to the forefront.

Ethnography

Ethnography involves collecting data through immersive fieldwork in a particular community or culture. Ethnographers typically spend a significant amount of time in the field, observing and participating in the everyday lives of the people they are studying. Ethnography is useful for understanding the cultural practices and perspectives of a particular group, and for exploring how these shape their experiences and behaviors.

Qualitative Interviews

We have expertise in conducting qualitative interviews involving collecting data through one-on-one conversations with subject matter experts (key informant interviews), or general population respondents (in-depth interviews).

Experimental Research

Experimental research is a systematic and controlled approach to investigating cause-and-effect relationships in a scientific study. In social sciences, experimental research is used to study and understand various aspects of human behavior and social phenomena. It is helpful to test hypotheses, assess the impact of interventions, and gather empirical data on topics such as human behavior, attitudes, social interactions, etc. Mindset is skilled in experimental research, spanning research question design, sampling, and random assignment of participants to experimental and control groups, as well as measuring the effect of a specific intervention on dependent variables. 

Quasi-Experimental Research

Quasi-experimental research involves studying the effects of an intervention or treatment without randomly assigning participants to a control group, which makes it particularly useful when dealing with pre-existing groups or real-world conditions. Mindset is experienced in designing quasi-experimental research frameworks with pre-existing groups, complex environments, or ethical constraints, providing meaningful insights to our clients. The process usually includes defining research questions, selecting participants, applying interventions or treatments, collecting and analyzing data, and drawing conclusions based on the observed outcomes.

Thematic Research

Thematic research is a qualitative research approach that involves identifying, analyzing, and reporting recurring themes or patterns within a dataset. At Mindset, we offer in-depth thematic research services to illuminate complexities and empower informed decision-making. Our team can deliver granular analysis within specified subjects, harnessing our expertise across various social and development sectors. We delve into the heart of each theme, shedding light on nuances that could influence strategic planning, policy development, or program implementation.
