Looking for students ages 12–18 to help test question wording on a national survey about school-related topics. Interviews will be one hour and will take place by computer and phone. Students under age 18 must have a parent or guardian’s permission to participate. We will provide a thank you of $25 to each student who participates in the study, plus $25 to the parent or guardian who assists with setting up the interview (federal employees are not eligible to receive the $25).  

We need students ages 12–18 who meet any of the following criteria: 

  • Enrolled in a public or private middle or high school. 
  • Attended school in person this school year. 
  • Attended school virtually this school year. 
  • Homeschooled in grades equivalent to 6–12 instead of attending a public or private school. 
  • Had an experience in school they consider to be bullying this school year.

To see if your child is eligible for the study, please complete a short questionnaire at https://research.rm.census.gov/jfe/form/SV_4VCoP7uGqIlYUf3, or contact Kevin at 301-763-4979 or csm.participate@census.gov for further information. Please mention the code SCHOOL when you call or email.
