Xamarin + Social Good

Non-profits and charitable organizations use Xamarin
to make the world a better place.

The World Bank relies on
Xamarin to conduct surveys at a global scale.

The World Bank uses survey data from the world’s poorest regions in its fight for economic equality, and legacy paper and laptop-based methods made surveys difficult and time consuming to execute. With Xamarin and Visual Studio, the World Bank is able to use tablets to collect population survey data from tens of thousands of individuals, while retaining respondent confidentiality.

  • Used in 30+ countries and 50 survey projects
  • Faster, more reliable data collection and analyses means more people are surveyed
  • Supports complex branching logic, automatically customizing questions based on prior answers
  • Respondents can self-type answers, and their honesty is critical for accurate data analysis
