Research questions sought for Nebraska survey

The University of Nebraska–Lincoln is ending its COVID-19 random mitigation testing program.

The Bureau of Sociological Research is making plans for the 45th administration of the Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS). Researchers are invited to consider adding questions for their own research objectives to the survey.

Costs are estimated to be $7,500 a page. The omnibus survey can be a valuable source of information regarding the opinions and behaviors of adult household residents in Nebraska.

NASIS is a mail survey of about 1,000 Nebraska adults, historically completed annually. It has been conducted since 1977 and is recognized by researchers, state agencies and legislators as a scientific way to measure public opinion and behaviors regarding various issues that face Nebraskans. The bureau works with researchers interested in participating to develop items for inclusion in the survey to best suit researchers’ needs and interests. It is a cost-effective way to obtain valuable survey data because the expense for obtaining basic demographic information such as age, sex, family, employment, etc., is shared by all participating researchers.

Anyone interest in participating, or who has questions about involvement, should contact Amanda Ganshert at More information about the survey can be found on the NASIS website.

Data collection is scheduled to begin in July with client data delivered in November. To stay on this timeline, the bureau would like to initiate discussions with prospective clients as soon as possible and no later than April 30.
