Feedback from clients
“Mitra and Associates is a research organization with international survey experts that have proven to meet the highest standards of research design, implementation, data management and analysis while also being one of the most affordable research organizations I have encountered.
Their system not only ensures high-quality research but also avoids the pitfalls that commonly besiege other organizations with costly and sometimes irreparable consequences to design and data validity.
The system they have developed and implemented for research planning/design and conduct, including data collection instrument pretesting, training/standardization and oversight of data managers, supervisors, and data collectors and data entry clerks have systematically produced research of the highest caliber for over 30 years.
Their system not only ensures full compliance with study protocols but also study timelines and budgets.
Mitra and Associates is one of the few organizations that has conducted the DHS surveys since their inception, that has also conducted multiple national maternal mortality surveys, community- and facility-based surveys, and randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
As Principal Investigator of the first cluster RCT of community-based kangaroo mother care, Mitra and Associates design and data management, including one of the first attempts to use computer-assisted data collection, was stellar, producing extremely clean data in both a timely and affordable manner while ensuring confidentiality and secure data storage and transfer.
For these reasons, Mitra and Associates is always my first “go to” choice for implementing or guiding others conducting public health research. For these reasons, I have and will continue to recommend their use to various organizations working around the world to help guide data collection training and management and optimize research quality.” – Dr. Nancy Sloan
