Hanovia Limited provides professional quantitative and qualitative data collection services, as well as project management expertise in Nigeria and the wider West Africa region.
Quantitative & Qualitative Surveys: We are capable of collecting large scale quantitative data by administering and managing extensive surveys, as well as more granular qualitative data through focus group discussions. We have for example experience in collecting complicated vignette case-study data from midwives and nurses to measure provider knowledge. Hanovia is also able to collect biomarker data relating to a wide range of health conditions, including infectious and sexually transmitted infections (STIs), chronic illnesses (such as diabetes, micronutrient deficiencies), and exposure to environmental toxins.
CAPI: We have ample experience using paper-and-pencil and innovative Computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) techniques to collect data from urban and rural households, businesses, patients & health centres, communities and many other entities. We support high quality survey design when needed, as all high quality data starts with a good survey tool. Before going to the field, Hanovia extensively pretests surveys to improve the flow and in order to reduce potential sources of errors. In Nigeria, lots of local languages are spoken. Our translation support ensures that the materials accurately capture the intended meaning of the researchers.
Enumerator Pool: We work with hundreds of experienced enumerators that we can deploy on a moment’s notice. All of our enumerators are rigorously screened and trained to collect the highest-level data quality possible.
Quality Control: Highest-level quality data for our clients is our main goal. Our in-house data analysis experts can put data quality checks in place that allow us to control the quality of incoming data in real-time to make adjustments if necessary. As part of our quality checks, we use GPS coordinates, audio and video recordings, as well as extensive back-check procedures.
Ethical standards: We also support our clients in obtaining ethical clearance from academic and/or government Institutional Review Boards (IRB) for human subjects survey and research work. In all our surveys, we ensure that the privacy of our respondents is not violated.
