Oxfam Research Guidelines

Guidelines and toolkits

Part of Oxfam’s Research Guidelines series, this guideline gives an overview of how to plan survey research, one of the most widely used tools in research for development. Properly designed survey research is vital to development work because it allows researchers to gather accurate quantitative data on a variety of topics, helping to give development projects and decisions a stronger evidence base. The guideline covers the most important steps in the survey process, including, sampling, questionnaire design, data collection and data analysis.
