Lao Social Research (LSR Ltd) was formed in 2011 by experienced social researchers in the Lao PDR to provide a specialized social research service. LSR is registered with the Department of Enterprise Registration and Management, Ministry of Industry and Commerce under registration number 3089, 30/08/2011.
LSR’s mission is to provide a high quality qualitative social research service to address the research needs of international financial institutions, NGOs, and bilateral aid agencies.
LSR started out providing social research, field surveys, evaluations, and analysis as the initial business focus. However through the success of our projects, confidence, and support from our clients, LSR has expanded to include the services below. In addition to our success, our capacity has allowed us to incorporate more IT services in the last five years. Our IT service ranges from implementation of the latest technology platforms to developing customized software applications. This includes developing databases, websites, providing computer assisted personal interviews (CAPI) such as ODK, etc. Notice that our IT service is not a service category on its own but a service to support/enhance the M&E, Field Survey, and Data Analysis service. As a supplement to our IT services we are currently seeking to expand more into providing business intelligence service. Please feel free to contact us about any of our services and what we can develop for you. Our current services include:
