Study Design

Thoughtful study design is critical to ensure we’re asking the right questions in the right ways. Our team has expertise in a wide variety of study designs and methods used in global health research, including:

  • Experimental studies, like cluster randomized trials and randomized controlled trials
  • Quasi-experimental studies, like difference-in-difference and interrupted time series
  • Observational epidemiological studies, like cohort, case-control, cross-sectional, and panel
  • Innovative randomized designs, like MOST and stepped-wedge
  • Survey sampling
  • Psychometrics
  • Qualitative data
