Locating and Tracing

With a history of conducting longitudinal studies and managing panels, NORC is adept at locating and tracing respondents which is a crucial part to help maintain high response rates. Using free online searches as well as paid searches through several different, secure online vendors (such as Lexis Nexis®), NORC’s trained locating and tracing specialists investigate and navigate through public records to locate respondents, including hard to reach populations, during a given data collection period. Large scale searches or ‘batches’ can also be utilized to help maintain panel records in an increasing mobile world with address, email address and cell and landline phone number updates, including deceased verification.
