Survey Data Collection

NORC is at the forefront of survey data collection via the web, mobile devices, telephone, mail, and in-person interviews. We survey numerous populations and subpopulations, achieving high response rates that enhance the value of the data.

Representative Projects

Developing Tools to Engage Adolescent Men Who Have Sex with Men (AMSM). ​​In 2015, NORC began work in partnership with the Fenway Institute for the Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop an innovative social media based recruitment and data collection effort targeting 13 to 18 year old, gay, bisexual, questioning, and transgender youth who were born male. More

The African Cashew Initative , funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, aims to strengthen global competitiveness of cashew production and processing in five pilot countries in Africa: Mozambique, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire and Benin. More

National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. The National Longitudinal Survey of Youth (NLSY), sponsored and funded by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor, is the youth-focused component of the National Longitudinal Survey (NLS) Program – a set of surveys used to gather information on the labor market experiences of American men and women. The National Longitudinal Surveys are conducted jointly by the Ohio State University Center for Human Resource Research (CHRR) and NORC at the University of Chicago. More

STAR Health Caregiver Survey. Funded by the University of Florida Institute for Child Health Policy (UF-ICHP), the purpose of the STAR Health Caregiver Survey is to determine the health status of children in foster care who are enrolled in the STAR Health Program, and to assess caregivers’ experiences and satisfaction with the health care services their child receives. The results of the survey will be used to make recommendations to the State of Texas and Texas Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCO) for improving health care delivery and quality to Medicaid members. More

Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF). Sponsored by the Federal Reserve Board, this triennial survey is the only fully representative source of information on the broad financial circumstances of U.S. households. No other survey collects data on the household finances of a probability sample of Americans.  Data from the SCF are used to inform monetary policy, tax policy, consumer protection, and a variety of other policy issues. The data also serve as a basis for longer-term research on the economic state of the American family.​ More
