Your Research Partner in Transforming Lives
Be more effective and efficient at transforming lives with the help of credible, yet agile, responsive, and "accessible" research and data solutions. In NEERMAN, you find a partner who provides high-quality solutions in a transparent and accountable manner. Whether publishing in top academic journals, collecting data or building your research capacity, we succeed only when you transform lives.
At NEERMAN, we use a scientific, evidence-based approach to help corporations, international funding agencies, governments, NGOs, social enterprises, and academic institutions understand which social programs are truly impactful, where to invest resources, and how to implement programs effectively. We see evaluation as an ‘implementation tool’ that not only assesses a program but also provides methods to improve it. Our work is critical to bridging the gap between field research and advocacy, which in turn is helpful in influencing policy and forming public-private partnerships.
NEERMAN helps programmes deliver impacts through design and operationalisation of Monitoring & Learning (M&L) Systems. We develop M&L systems through stakeholder consultation so that the system acts as an implementation tool, and not an audit tool. We help organizations architect Android or Web platforms for their monitoring systems, and design ICT-driven accountability mechanisms. Apart from data driven M&L Systems, we also analyse monitoring data and conduct process evaluations to generate learnings for the programmes.
NEERMAN’s expertise in econometrics, biostatistics and epidemiological research methods enable us to conduct rigorous impact evaluations and causal inference research. We are adept at designing and implementing randomized controlled trials, matched cohort studies, quasi-experimental designs, regression discontinuity designs, and case-control studies for a range of interventions in Water-Sanitation-Hygiene, Public Health, Energy, Nutrition, Child Protection, and other sectors.
SURVEYS AND DATA COLLECTION
NEERMAN’s survey division was established because no other survey firm in India could meet our expectations of international-quality processes and rigour of data collection. Over time, we perfected our procedures to ensure high-quality data on time. We also built a pan-India network of more than 2000 enumerators and supervisors who are individually whetted by us. Today, our survey division works directly with other research organizations and international universities who truly value data quality.
NEERMAN conducts a variety of policy research studies such as cross-sectional descriptive surveys, willingness-to-pay or demand assessments, choice or conjoint analyses, and cost-effectiveness studies. We are experts in the rigorous measurement of economic, social, health, nutrition, and environmental variables using small- to large-scale statistically robust surveys. We strive to apply cutting edge statistical and economic methods including recent advances in machine learning-based inference.
The Center for Healthcare Transformation (Heat), a subsidiary of NEERMAN, provides monitoring and evaluation services focused on healthcare delivery towards the goal of healthcare system strengthening in India.
