Our survey teams combine vast experience in managing large household survey and census activities with state of the art capabilities in data capture. We fully understand the need to gather accurate data under tight deadlines and budgets, and we work with you to optimize data quality.
Kimetrica has worked with National Statistical Authorities worldwide to help ensure smooth approvals and collaboration with local authorities. Our strong network of local and international survey partners gives us the ability to work on large, multi-country studies.
Kimetrica surveyed 8,460 households in three regions: Oromia, Amhara and Tigray. The baseline survey, one of the largest ever implemented by USAID in Ethiopia, had a very short execution period and required rapid mobilization of hundreds of field staff.
Kimetrica carried out an 8,460-household baseline survey in three regions of Ethiopia: Oromia, Amhara, and Tigray. The survey, one of the largest-ever implemented by USAID in Ethiopia, had a very short execution period, which required rapid mobilisation of hundreds of field staff.
Kimetrica’s research team managed the field work, including training and managing over 300 enumerators who conducted household interviews and took anthropometric measurements of children aged 5 and under. A comprehensive listing (village census) exercise of over 282 kebeles was undertaken, including GIS mapping of household locations. The listing data formed the basis for a three-stage cluster sample to ensure survey results represented the target populations. Data were collected using tablet computers and CSPro survey software. Survey results provided FFP with a situational analysis prior to implementing food and non-food aid programming. Follow-on surveys of the same households will provide results and impact information critical to the successful management of FFP’s multi-million dollar support efforts.
Kimetrica is providing cutting-edge technical field support to the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), one of USAID’s longest running and most successful research activities. Kimetrica’s survey team is helping DHS move from paper data collection to computer and smartphone based data collection, using a mobile version of the CSPro survey management tool.
This shift is improving survey data accuracy and markedly shortening the time between field data collection and results dissemination. In addition, Kimetrica’s trainers are helping to build a cadre of local survey experts to manage DHS’s complex demographics and health surveys, malaria indicator surveys, and service provision assessment surveys. Kimetrica’s work is helping to shift the bulk of DHS work from international consultants to local experts.
