Data Analyst Consultant: for International Cooperative Research

The U.S. Overseas Cooperative Development Council (OCDC) is an association comprised of cooperative development organizations committed to building a more prosperous world through co-operatives. The International Cooperative Research Group (ICRG) is a division of OCDC that conducts original, collaborative, academically rigorous research that bridges the gap between theory and practice. More specifically, the ICRG carries out original, solution-oriented research and supports the members of the OCDC through designing and executing on cooperative development programming that strengthens governance, leadership, gender empowerment, youth engagement, financial management, market performance, and advocacy. Disseminating data-driven results, ICRG aims to increase the impact of cooperative development as well as its uptake to foster inclusive growth in countries where its members work. ICRG is currently undertaking several projects in collaboration with partner organizations, related to cooperative resilience and other current global issues where cooperatives may have a role to play in mitigating adversity. Examples of our studies include exploring factors related to cooperative resilience in the face of external shocks such as COVID-19, the potential impact of cooperative membership on migration, and associations between health cooperative membership and women’s health agency, among others. As ICRG continues to expand our research portfolio, we seek to broaden the scope of methodologies used to understand the role and status of cooperatives in international development and global wellbeing, particularly in the realm of statistical and econometric analysis of data.
