FA Social Research Services
Social survey plays a vital role in assisting governments and businesses to develop services, policies, and products that are responsive to identified needs. Social survey also reveals society dynamics and makes us understand the society as a whole or in constituent base that are relevant to a certain scope such as public health, public services (providers or users), government programs, intervention or stimulus programs, politics and elections, ideological perception measurements, institutional image in private or public sector, internal customer satisfaction, non-profit organization programs. Social research helps to decision makers seeking effectiveness both in outcomes and costs in variety of programs or determine how/why an intervention or program works or doesn’t work.
FA offers project management assistance, fieldwork operation and data delivery services in social research projects.
Our social research experience and abilities allow us to give accurate sample feasibility and recommendations to our clients.
We believe in providing realistic and substantive practices and recommendations rather than resulting unappealing conclusions with our clients. Universe size, methodology, indication, timeline and projected incidence rate are some of the factors we consider when evaluating project feasibility, project management and fieldwork practice requirements of a social research work. Our knowledge of social research work allows us to offer quick turnaround of cost and feasibility requests.
FA helps its clients to draw / select samples that well represent the population to be studied and indicates the points in research designs that break the balance in costs.
FA always takes great care in guiding to the concepts being measured and the population studied according to the society’s values, morals and traditions and sensitive current developments that may cause a negative perception towards interviewing or lower response rate, in other words increasing refusals.
