Research Methods

The CAB has a rich and diverse experience in conducting a wide range of empirical research studies on themes of public interest, both on the national and regional scales, based on recognized international quality standards (ESOMAR, WAPOR) and strict multi-level quality controls. Over the past ten years, we’ve perfected our procedures for appropriate sampling, data collection, field administration, response coding, data processing, and documentation.

We have the necessary competencies, resources, and workflows to conduct qualitative and quantitative sociological research projects, both online and offline. Over the years, we’ve created a large partners’ network for data collection in each Central Asian country and introduced essential standards and processes for working with contractors.

Target groups:

  • General population
