We collect data in a way that complements traditional practices, provide private, non-profit and government agencies with rich, real-time insight, and enhance the overall understanding of people and communities in Africa.








Mobile app surveys

Our mobile survey application is built to function on mobile phones with low or no connectivity. Users can stay connected anywhere there is a working phone signal and participate in our surveys even in the absence of a data network.

Mobile Voice surveys

We combine the effectiveness of face-to-face surveys with the efficiency of mobile technology in a model that allows us to collect information at more frequent intervals, and at a lower cost.


Mobile SMS surveys

Built on BDA's interactive, user-friendly text messaging platform, our SMS surveys are accessible to millions of cell phone users, on a variety of networks across Africa.
