Surveys are powerful tools for collecting critical data on target populations: data which enable decision makers to evaluate the success of their programs and direct future actions. Whether through surveying their personnel, the beneficiaries of their program, or a sample of overall households, clients find well-administered surveys generate the data they need to make informed decisions.
RDN has a wide range of experience conducting personnel, household, and program evaluation surveys. Examples of our work include designing and implementing detailed surveys of demographic and housing characteristics of military personnel to determine current and projected housing needs; surveying households to collect valuable data for clients in diverse fields, including education, transportation, and sport-fishing, to determine the value of programs and to forecast future demand; and supporting the California State Department of Education in assessing the impacts of selected courses on student post-graduation outcomes. RDN works closely with clients to provide all-inclusive survey support, including customized web-based applications for survey data entry, reporting, and program administration.
