VTT is a technically capable organization with a presence in over 107 cities throughout Pakistan, engaged in providing dedicated technology enabled research services for development sector organizations for over a decade. VTT Global’s research and analysis team is adept at data collection and analysis, as well as applying synthesis methods. While quantitative surveys can be cost-effective and provide easy to interpret data, it is usually wise to complement quantitative data with substantial qualitative research. The technical team has extensive experience in preparing and analyzing data, and has established a portfolio of the following tools for the purpose of primary data collection:
- Focus Group Discussions
- Key Informant Interviews
- Structured/Semi-Structured Tools
- Observation Instruments
Furthermore, the team utilizes sophisticated quantitative analysis tools and statistical packages including STATA, SPSS, spreadsheets, NVivo, MIS/GIS systems, and M&E decision support portals to examine differences between datasets and analyze patterns. These tools enable our researchers to test theories, identify trends and cross-examine information gathered through various data collection modalities. VTT ensures that its field teams are well trained on the objectives of the assigned task on the research tools/instruments employed for the surveys and GPS tagging of photos. To acquire relevant and meaningful area knowledge and demographic information from the concerned bodies, 100% verification is done by crosschecking the data of hard and soft copies to filter out any inconsistencies.
