EDC’s staff provides expertise in education and social science research. We design and conduct large-scale randomized controlled trials, quasi-experimental evaluations, research syntheses, and secondary data analyses.

Our staff also has extensive experience in conducting surveys and formative and marketing research, including focus groups and interviews. Findings are used to inform policy and program strategies as well as to identify communication strategies, provide input on how programs are working, and determine what actions are needed to promote education, health, and livelihoods.
