JBS specializes in some of the most challenging kinds of evaluationsâ€”gathering and analyzing data from hard-to-access populations, including low-literate and non-English-speaking adults, people moving from dependence to self-sufficiency, American Indians and Alaska Natives in tribal and urban settings, and residents of nations transitioning to democracy.
Our culturally diverse team conducts evaluations in a variety of arenas: health care, behavioral health, education, child welfare, and immigrant services. We also work with populations that have little experience with evaluations, people who fear participating in evaluations, at-risk populations, and others.
We are highly skilled in quantitative and qualitative analyses and employ rigorous analytic tools for each evaluation effort, working to design evaluations that maximize resources and offer the appropriate level of rigor for the questions of interest.Â
