Social Research. Reimagined.
At Decodis, we listen to vulnerable people who want to talk about their lives and who have opinions about the institutions that serve them. We’ve found that if you give them the space to talk – in their own language and dialect – they will tell you exactly what they think. We also decode information in their voices to unearth the emotions behind their words, to increase our understanding of their words.

Understanding vulnerable populations
Being challenged to find innovative ways to do research during the pandemic, Dr. Daryl Collins, author of Portfolios of the Poor and one of the innovators behind the Financial Diaries methodology, turned to new technologies to collect data and understand how people coped financially with the crisis. What she found was even richer than she had imagined.
