Mercy Corps

Created 11/18/2011



This document presents lessons learned about developing and using indicators and data collection tools to measure the impact of interventions designed to reduce both poverty and conflict.

Recommendations include:

  • Focus on a limited number of more precise, less nuanced questions in both survey and focus group data to simplify data analysis and minimize ambiguous results.
  • Simplify participatory tools and surveys so that they take less time to administer, more interviews can be conducted, and sample size can increase.
