Innovating in survey research
for more than 50 years



In this challenging time, CHRR has been actively involved in helping our communities understand some of the implications of COVID-19. Our team has been integrally involved in a survey of Ethiopian residents regarding their understanding of COVID-19, with findings used to help Ethiopian leaders draft policy: Survey in Ethiopia on COVID-19 reveals need for better communication strategies around Non-Pharmaceutical Interventions.

CHRR is also conducting a series of brief surveys with American Population Panel​ members to provide information on American citizens’ behavioral changes resulting from the spread of the coronavirus. Preliminary Ohio results from the APP surveys have been published by Ohio State News: Survey shows how Ohioans’ views on COVID-19 have evolved. We will be disseminating the additional results from these surveys as quickly as we can.

For more information on COVID-19 visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Ohio Department of Health (ODH) websites. You can also find more information at The Ohio State University's COVID-19 website or by calling the ODH Hotline: 1-833-4ASKODH.

Karen Gaynor, Associate Director

Sincere congratulations to longtime CHRR staff member Karen Gaynor, who is retiring after more than 30 years at Ohio State with 24 of those years at CHRR.

Karen is the epitome of professionalism and we will also miss her for her kindness, caring, and willingness to go above and beyond. Karen never searches for praise, but it is well deserved.

Best wishes on your next adventure, Karen!
