Survey Research

ISSR does not conduct surveys or provide support for surveys. ASU researchers who need pilot data on a specific topic can apply to the Survey Center at the University of Florida for up to 5 minutes of time on their monthly survey of Florida. Applicants whose questions are selected for the survey receive 500 completes, at no cost, plus all the demographic data. Questions can be about any topic. In return, researchers are asked to produce a 3-page report of their findings that will be posted to the Survey  Center’s web site. You may e-mail Dr. Christopher McCarty at for more information about this.
