Mini Surveys

Mini Surveys logo

Mini Surveys have evolved as a way to offer researchers, both students and academics, the opportunity to ask a few targeted questions to reach specific research objectives. For researchers, these surveys provide data for pilot studies, seed grants, and for students, data for thesis and dissertation projects.

The Mini Surveys have are a valuable tool for CHRR to engage current members of the American Population Panel, as well as attract new members to the panel. 15 Mini Surveys have been completed to date (5/2021), with more in the pipeline over the coming year. A selection of our Mini Surveys are listed below.
