Propose Ideas for the ANES 2016 Pilot Study

The ANES Pilot Study is currently scheduled to be in the field in January 2016 to test new questions for the Time Series. We invite all those who have innovative ideas to propose them for testing in this study. This study allows for the gathering of evidence regarding how particular questions perform in real surveys. Based on analysis from the pilot study, proposed questions may be included in future ANES studies. The interviews will last approximately 20 minutes, and almost all of this time will be available for administering new questions. The questionnaire will be administered via internet. Proposals received earlier will receive greater attention from the ANES community and are likely to be advantaged in the review process as a result. For more information on how we will evaluate and choose amongst proposals, please visit the ANES Online Commons.
