American Population Panel

APP logo

Imagine. Inquire. Inspire. Inform.

The American Population Panel (APP) was launched in the summer of 2017 by CHRR. The APP is a group of volunteer members, 18 years or older living in the United States, who agree to participate in social science and health related studies.

It is a resource used to help researchers target various population subgroups and match potential participants to their studies. By having members already committed to participate, the APP helps researchers get their projects up and running more inexpensively than if they had to recruit people themselves.

The panel has over 49,000 members (as of 9/2022) living in all 50 states and we continually recruit new members in order to provide a diverse demographic makeup for researchers to choose from for their projects. In addition, utilizing the panel offers researchers the exciting opportunity to undertake longitudinal surveys with the same respondents.
