Social marketing monitoring and evaluation aim to determine the effectiveness of campaigns in achieving their communication and behavioral outcome objectives. They seek to answer two questions: Did the campaign achieve its objectives? If so, how did it achieve them? Monitoring and evaluation studies are both concerned with process and outcome evaluation; impact of campaigns can be inferred from process and outcome. Digital technologies, including the Internet and mobile phones, are increasingly part of the monitoring and evaluation toolkit. This chapter details methods and measures for process and outcome evaluation, including dosage measurement and design challenges and considerations. The chapter also covers examples from childhood obesity prevention, sexual health, and the US national census.
