R&E Surveys + Analysis

ICF International assists agencies, businesses, and nonprofits worldwide in developing and implementing surveys and provides valuable, practical analysis.



For more than two decades, ICF has created surveys that incorporate emerging methodologies and generate strong, defensible response rates. We employ proprietary methodologies and diverse subject matter experts to develop survey content and adaptable survey systems that are tailored toward the survey population. Our analysis is distinguished by precise understanding of survey data, and our reports communicate results in ways audiences can grasp.

ICF combines in-person data collection techniques with tablets and geographic information systems (GIS) to collect and process data efficiently. We are a leader in our capability to weight cell phone survey data and combine it with landline data in a cost-effective manner. In challenging environments, such as developing countries, ICF builds capacity of local field workers in surveying and monitoring so that they successfully overcome logistic and sampling difficulties.

ICF supports survey and behavioral analysis clients with:

  • Survey management quality control
  • Questionnaire and manual development
  • Training in and implementation of data collection programs
  • Implementing biomarker testing and building capacity
  • Data processing methodology adaptation
  • Federal Information Security Management Act data security capacity—FISMA-moderate compliant
  • Software development
  • Analysis and dissemination of findings

ICF works at the forefront of developing appropriate systems to process and disseminate survey data. Our STATcompiler online database tool enables stakeholders to efficiently view customized data tabulation scenarios in real time. In addition, ICF was one of the first survey research organizations to delve into web-based surveying in 1998, as well as cell phone surveying, which we piloted as early as 2000.
