Social Survey – Socio-economic Survey – Socio-Economic Study | A social survey or socio economic survey enables organisations to consider the realities and insights of a wide range of societal issues. It is done through a statistically validated set of data and information, enabling them to be more transparent about the risks and opportunities they face.
There is increasing recognition that we need better ways to account for the social, economic and environmental that drive our project activities.
Understanding the effects of policies, projects, and programmes on individuals, communities, societies and service users have become a central element of the project life cycle. More than ever before, the evidence underpinning the decision-making process is an essential element of project development.
