Include Your Questions on a National Survey

DISM is pleased to invite brief applications from student researchers (graduate or undergraduate) to include questions on a new omnibus survey to be fielded under our direction. Questions selected through this competitive application process will be administered to a 1,000-person national sample survey. This sample will not be a probability sample, so this project is best suited to experimental designs or pilot projects.   

Applications are due 9/15 by 5 p.m. Applications can be submitted online through this website, which will collect basic data about the applicants and requires upload of a brief proposal in Word format that includes a one- to two-paragraph description of the purpose of the project and the draft questions the applicant seeks to see included.

Applicants should expect that they may be asked to discuss their project, its relation to other proposals, and ways that proposals might be revised, refined, or even combined. 

This project will deliver a 1,000 person survey covering content chosen through this RFP and common demographic measures of respondents. The survey will be fielded in October, 2016, and it's planned that survey data will be delivered November, 2016.
