Guidelines and toolkits

Surveys form the basis of many data collection exercises run by Oxfam and other organizations, ranging from assessments to ongoing monitoring and evaluation processes. Traditional methods of conducting surveys (often paper-based) can be time-consuming and there are limitations to the type and accuracy of information they collect. Digitalizing these data collection processes – using mobile phones or tablets instead of pen and paper – provides an opportunity to improve both the process and outputs of data collection.

Oxfam has developed this toolkit to support programme staff to conduct a mobile data collection exercise.
