Quality Control

ACSOR is a quality-driven organization. Our primary goal is to provide reliable, scientifically accurate data that represents the target population.

ACSOR has over a decade-long track record of producing quality research in the Afghan context. Our proven, comprehensive quality control testing is predicated on statistical best practices, going beyond standard field monitoring and on-site back-checking to assure data integrity, reliability and accuracy.

Our quality control process includes a combination of the following:

  • Questionnaire design and review
  • Pilot testing
  • Regular and comprehensive interviewer training
  • In-person supervision of interviews
  • Random in-person back-checks where a supervisor revisits a respondent after interviews are completed
  • Random call backs to verify interviews if phone numbers are provided
  • Double data entry process
