RAI Membership

RAI Membership

Research Analytics International (RAI) has established great ties with the public and private sector organizations and has successfully provided services in Research, Monitoring and Evaluation, Project Design and Management, Training and Capacity Building. In order to make a community of development practitioners with common goals and with the need to make a real and empirically sound impact of socioeconomic and political interventions, RAI has initiated taking organizations/individuals (Both Public and Private) as member partners of it to make it convenient to interact with each other. 

Rationale

There are many other membership platforms that are available then why RAI has been in it to make a membership community? This is because RAI has been established with a need to draw on policy level decisions based on findings based on applied research, being done by every organization but are they able to make a difference based on their research endeavors, is a big question. If no, RAI has a solution that is not out of the way but is based on just important basic and key principles that member organizations have to ensure by getting help from RAI on the following steps: 


  1. Research designs (Whether it is descriptive, correlational or causal study), sampling design (whether it is probability sample or non-probability), mix method study (whether triangulation considered or not) are very important technical steps that every research study should consider and has to meet all assumptions. 

  2. Statistical Analysis: Yet many claim to be able to do statistical analysis but in fact it is very technical when it comes to make it sure that research is generalizable and presentable at an international platform. RAI has specific skills to do basic to advance level statistical analysis. 
  3. Reporting Results: Many projects involve data collection but very few are able to put results from those datasets into reports. In the contemporary era, there is less need to print report rather publish them online so that everyone can access. So there is no excuse to budget shortages for publication of results. RAI has expertise to make reports presentable. 
  4. Designing Programs: There is none of the planned projects/programs that are not based on rationale that is supported by data and research insights. Let RAI use your project and research insights to design new programs that can enable organizations to seek more funds, enable them to be practical in terms of designing and planning interventions and thus making a real change based on theory of change of the projects. 
  5. Monitoring and Evaluations: M&E is a very broad but very critical field in contemporary project management fields. Its vitality can be imagined that donors have specific requirements that are linked with strong M&E Frameworks, Data Collections and Analysis, reporting on KPIs and showing progress as per Logical Framework Matrices. RAI can play a catalytic role in development of M&E Plans, M&E Frameworks (Conceptual, Logical and Results Based), Formative and Applied Research studies etc. 

 

Members of the RAI would be having a special facilitation, coordination and mutual adjustment in terms of programmatic and financial constraints for the following services.

 

Research Surveys

Research Surveys are the only tool in contemporary social sciences to draw on theories and to investigate scientifically, particularly in the context when resources are limited and need is big. We design and provide complete surveying services under socioeconomic and political themes. Our surveying services are based on strong methodological approach and results are quotable with international standards. We can provide quantitative and qualitative surveying services that meet the organizational needs. We provide services for Baselines, Mid and Endlines, Situation Analysis, Citizen Report Cards, Poverty Report Cards, Community Score Cards among others. In development sector, these surveys are called:

 

  1. Baselines, Mid, End-lines
  2. Program Evaluations, Impact Evaluations,
  3. Need Assessments, Situation Analysis
  4. Program Review, Case Studies,
  5. Operations Research

 

 

Data Analysis

There are two main types of data analysis and then there are lot many applications to data analysis under quantitative and qualitative research. We provide quantitative and qualitative data analyses services. We work and analyze nationally representative surveys like Labour Force Surveys, Pakistan Social and Living Standards Measurement Surveys (PSLM), Demographic and Health Surveys (DHSs) and others. We also collect and analyze data through primary sources i.e. interviews. We also provide extended analytic framework to review and test the project/program interventions. We apply advance and standard statistical methods like parametric and non-parametric tests, regressions, and predictive analytics to work out for betterment of the projects.

Statistical Analysis to generate empirical evidences

Many development projects claim to transform the societies and target populations towards sustainable development, the company, therefore, provides services to generate statistical evidence on programs' impact, interventions' effect and to guide programs to effectively design future interventions that left sustainable improvements on communities. We use internationally recognized advance analyses techniques like Factor Analysis, Regressions (different types), Clinical Trials among many others. The company also provides services for cross-sectional and panel data analysis services.

Data Management

Our clients require services for data management for different development and business projects. The company also provides expert Data Analysis and Management services that include data collection, database designing, data entry/cleaning/coding and data processing. The company uses the best available tools to make data analysis and management a unique and awarding services for clients.

Monitoring and Evaluations

Monitoring and Evaluation is a board term yet very instrumental and rudimentary technique that every organization should worth with. We provide M&E Services that work along the way with the development projects, highlighting important and key steps requiring immediate attention leading to an ultimate success. M&E is more than just numbers, however, it deals with numbers. Let us help all your project initiatives well monitored and evaluated with timely and professionally designed services.

GIS Mapping

Geographic Information System (GIS) has been an integral part of socioeconomic development because it generates evidence that exactly portrays the situation. The results prepared using GIS technology cannot be denied because it reflects what is on ground. It is being used in Education, Health, WASH, Humanitarian Response and to develop Poverty Profiles through maps developed in GIS. We provide high quality GIS services for national and international organizations to know and prioritize their research and development interventions. We also train human resources on use and applications of GIS.

Event Management and Conferencing Services

RAI is particularly instrumental in arranging conferences and events of high influx. Rather its an annual meeting or a dissemination workshop, executive meetings, launching ceremonies and there is a need to get audience engaged, let us know and we will take full responsibility from start to end. We not only manage events and conferencing, we also provide pre and post event services including contacting participants, liaising with departments, venue arrangements, ticketing, and report preparation of the events. We have experience of working with government departments, we manage and update our contact lists and we have sector wise energetic and professional workforce. Contact us with confidence for event management and conferencing.

Marketing Research

Marketing research is an integral part of businesses whether it is for-profit or non-for-profit. Since business aims to develop a strong relation with customers, marketing research then becomes a vital instrument in designing products, establishing price points, designing social and economic development services. Marketing research is used to introduce, for example, the price of the family planning products, to introduce them in an acceptable context and to review their market success. In social services, many organizations develop products that promote sustainable use of clean water products like filters and improved-sanitation based products. Research Analytics International (Pvt.) Limited incorporates the advance market research and analytics tools to enable organizations/businesses to be more rewarding and successful.
