Research Studies

Our team is experienced in developing exploratory,  evaluative and explanatory studies to generate issue-specific actionable information for our clients. Drawing on our quantitative and qualitative research expertise, we employ a variety of methods to address the various components of the research project.

Building on and complimentary to our work in the areas of survey and market research as well as consultation, Praxis also undertakes more comprehensive research.
