A sample project might be to create a survey, deploy it to the field, manage data collection and analyze and synthesize learnings to make recommendations to our operations team. This can include creating and testing survey questions, translating, cleaning, coding and analyzing both quantitative and qualitative household survey data. This would involve identifying and running multiple correlations and regression analyses to identify influential variables that coincide with housing and well-being. An ideal outcome for a research project would include identifying the strongest impact variables for housing, visualizing the data and, working with our Director of Strategic Partnerships and Research to codify learning through a white-paper or case study that is rigorous yet digestible by a donor or academic publication.
