What is an "Azimuth"?

An azimuth is the angle between the true north and a given compass bearing. The word exists in many languages and derives from the medieval Arabic al-sumūt, or "the directions." 

Azimuth Social Research provides clients with evidence-based guidance to navigate complex cultural, political and social terrains.  


Our work helps organizations improve their operations and reputations, evaluate their impact and provide stakeholders with high quality, reliable evidence.
