Data Collection and Implementation Services
So you're getting started with the PPI, but you need a good sampling plan and the enumerators need training. The PPI team, complemented by IPA's experienced researchers based in IPA field offices, can support you to effectively and efficiently implement the PPI.
IPA currently offers the following services:
1) PPI Training
We provide training that imparts the essential skills and knowledge for successfully utilizing the PPI. This training can include an orientation for management teams to set expectations for results, in-depth training for enumerators on how to ask and score the PPI questions, plus training for research and IT staff on how to manage and interpret the data. This training covers the topics outlined in the Basic Standards of Use.
2) Sampling Guidance
How large should our sample size be for the PPI? Is it representative of the population we are surveying? Or should we collect PPI from all of our clients? Our experts will provide guidance on your sampling plan and support you to implement it.
3) Data Collection Support
We offer technical assistance on planning and executing PPI data collection. Topics covered can include:
- Integration of the PPI questions into a larger survey or regular touchpoints with customers
- Options for automating data collection
- How to establish systems that protect the integrity of the PPI data, and cleaning / validating your data
- IPA's field office research teams can also manage the entire process of PPI data collection for you
