Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS) 2017--Call for Researchers

The Bureau of Sociological Research (BOSR) is making plans for the 2016-2017 Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (referred to as NASIS).  We would like to invite you to consider adding questions for your own research objectives to this survey.  As many of our previous clients already know, this omnibus survey can be a valuable source of information regarding the opinions and behaviors of adult household residents in Nebraska.

 

NASIS is currently a mail survey of around 1,000 Nebraska adults historically completed annually.  NASIS has been conducted since 1977 and is recognized by researchers, state agencies and legislators as a scientific way to measure public opinion regarding various issues that face Nebraskans.  If you are interested in participating, we will work with your organization to develop items for inclusion in the survey to best suit your needs and interests.  It is a very cost effective way to obtain valuable survey data.  The expense for obtaining basic demographic information (such as age, sex, family, employment, etc.) is shared by all participants and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

 

If you are interested in participating, or simply have questions about possible involvement, we would be pleased to review your research needs and develop an appropriate research design.  Data collection is scheduled to begin in July 2017.  We plan to complete data collection in the fall and have client data and technical reports prepared by late fall 2017.  In order to stay on this timeline, we would like to initiate discussions with prospective clients as soon as possible and no later than May 12, 2017.

 

In addition to NASIS, BOSR offers many different services that can help any researcher with their data collection needs.  For more information, please visit our website:  http://bosr.unl.edu.

 

We would be happy to speak with you about how NASIS or other BOSR services can be employed to assist in you or your organization now and/or in the future.
