Data for Impact: What's the cost of evaluations and other surveys? Abstract:

A core principle of Data for Impact (D4I) is to help countries focus on their knowledge gaps in health and to consider the full range of options to address those issues. The primary types of evaluations in D4I’s scope are process, outcome, impact, and economic evaluations and implementation science and operations research. D4I also conducts outcome monitoring surveys and implements formative studies to aid in intervention design and implementation. When planning any of these investigations, cost is an important consideration that may help determine the decision to do or plan for an evaluation or study.

Cost is dependent on many factors, including objective, design, method, sample size, geographic scope, and local context. Other factors that affect cost are, for example, the front-end work required to plan an evaluation or study—which can be substantial. This resource shares details to consider.
