Causal Design

Who we are:

Causal Design is a for-profit public benefit corporation. Our team of humanitarians, researchers, project managers, and evaluation experts merged with a vision of making evidence-based programming affordable for NGOs, practical to field workers, and digestible to policy makers and the general public.
Together we have decades of experience executing experimental evaluations, collecting data in austere environments, managing community-based programs, and responding to humanitarian emergencies. We are economists, political scientists, data analysts, HR managers, and WatSan engineers. Our specialty: help solve your organization’s challenges quickly, practically, and with the most rigorous methods available.
