Routing for UAS417

C19_Intro (survey intro)
We are launching a new UAS survey series to help us track employment among U.S. residents as well as use of alcohol, tobacco and other substances. We need people who are and are not employed and those who do and do not use these to answer the questions once a month.

For that reason, we hope you will join the project so that we have input from every part of the country and from every walk of life, whether you have ever used these products or not.

We will ask you a few questions, then tell you a bit more about the new project later in the survey, and then you can decide.

Information about our new survey series

You will fill out a survey once a month on an assigned day. If you aren’t able to fill it out that day, you can make it up anytime in the next two weeks. The very short survey will ask you about whether your employment status changed, and if you have used any tobacco, alcohol or other products since the last time you answered.

If you decide to participate
  • We will assign you a certain day of the week (e.g. Monday, Tuesday, etc.)
  • You will be reminded to log in to on your assigned day once a month to answer a very short survey that will take less than 2 minutes. You will earn $2 for completing the survey.
  • From time to time we might ask other questions as well. If we do, you will earn $2 per every three minutes of the survey, as with all UAS surveys.
  • If you have to skip a survey, you will have up to 14 days to make it up, and you can still participate the next time.
If you decide not to participate nothing will change. This is completely voluntary! Even if you say yes now, you can stop doing the surveys at any time. Whether or not you participate in this survey series, we appreciate your continuing to complete our regular surveys.

If you have any questions about the study before you decide, please give us a call at 855-872-8673 or send an email to the UAS helpdesk:
