What We Do

As a field of knowledge, a profession, and a science, survey methodology seeks to link the principles of design, collection, processing, and analysis of survey to an understanding of error. Biases and the validity are some of the variables that affect the quality of data. Outline India is committed to strategizing survey methodology tailored to study specifics. Achieving high quality survey results within the scientific aspects of surveys requires applying principles from traditional academic disciplines such as statistics and the social sciences.
