QuIP Studies

BSDR offers consultancy for QuIP studies and has conducted a number of studies in Africa, Latin America and Asia in a range of different contexts such as food security, rural livelihoods, working conditions and wellbeing in garment factories, microcredit for housing improvements. Please take a look at who we work with for more information about the projects we have undertaken on behalf of clients.

Studies generally take the form of a ‘single’ or ‘double’ QuIP study, dictated by sampling requirements. Our team will work with you to determine the best sampling approach and questionnaire design based on the information you have and the theory of change you are testing. We will then train a field team, co-ordinate data collection, analysis and report-writing.

A QuIP report is designed to capture and summarise respondents’ views on what has changed in their lives over the set recall period, what they attribute the change to, and what impact these changes have had on their lives and livelihoods. Our coding system allows us to map drivers of change, outcomes and impacts – specifying the extent to which all of these were explicitly or implicitly related to the intervention being assessed, or to other external factors. Every study is unique, but our reporting approach remains similar. We are able to share some reports so do get in touch with us if you’d like to see what a QuIP report looks like. An example from a study undertaken for the C&A Foundation in Mexico is available here.

We have built an extensive network of local independent researchers from academic and research institutions who help us to conduct high quality local fieldwork, and who we invite to participate in triangulation learning workshops where the project allows. Take a look at where we work to see where we have trained field teams, but we are always interested in training up new teams if your country is not listed!

If you need a study undertaken within a set time period please get in touch as soon as possible so that we can book you in, our field teams and analysts are often in high demand.
