Survey Tools for OVC Programs

MEASURE Evaluation has developed quantitative child outcomes and caregiver/household outcomes measurement tools for global application. The purpose of the tools is:

  • To enable and standardize the production of population-level child and caregiver well-being data beyond what is available from routine surveys
  • To produce actionable data to inform programs and enable mid-course corrections
  • To enable comparative assessments of child and caregiver well-being and household economic status across a diverse set of interventions and geographical regions

Access the recording and slides from a webinar on the OVC Program Evaluation Tool Kit.

    This tool kit includes a manual, questionnaires and indicators, as provided here:


      Caregiver Questionnaire

          Child Questionnaire Ages 0-9 Years

          Child Questionnaire Ages 10-17 Years

              Study Protocol Template

              Groups wanting to implement the OVC Survey Tools will need to develop a protocol that reflects the specific objectives of the study. In this document, we have aimed to provide as much guidance as possible on study protocol development. 

              Data Analysis Guidance

              A data analysis plan—the first step in data analysis—ensures that the analysis will address the research questions and reflect the strengths and limitations of the data. This guide provides general information about planning and conducting data analysis and suggests analyses of the data that specific survey questions will generate.

              Core OVC Program Impact Indicators

              This set of 12 child and three household well-being indicators/suggested survey questions is recommended for use in evaluations of programs for orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC).
