SPR has a complement of more than 15 professionals and sub-professional researchers. It also employs a team of more than 15 interviewers and a panel of more than 100 part-time interviewers.
Staff members of SPR are professional researchers who have many years of experience in conducting statistical surveys, including designing questionnaires for gathering opinions of the general public and other stakeholders, devising sampling plan for selecting representative and unbiased samples, analyzing data systematically and professionally, and presenting findings to the public media, professionals, interest groups and policy makers.
All interviewers have ample experience in a number of household surveys, on district or territory-wide basis, involving face-to-face interviews, telephone interviews and on-site inspections. To ensure an adequate supply of field surveyors and to replace dropouts, recruitment of new panel enumerators is carried out periodically. All interviewers in the panel are given basic training in interviewing techniques and the codes of ethics for conducting surveys, in addition to subject-matter training in data collection related to the survey in question.
