The Bureau of Sociological Research is planning the 2016-2017 Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey. Researchers are invited to consider adding questions for their own research objectives to this survey.

This survey can be a valuable source of information regarding the opinions and behaviors of adult household residents in Nebraska.

Conducted since 1977, the annual mail survey asks questions to about 1,000 Nebraska adults. It is recognized by researchers, state agencies and legislators as a scientific way to measure public opinion regarding various issues that face the state. The Bureau of Sociological Research works with researchers interested in participating to develop items for inclusion in the survey to best suit their own needs and interests. The survey is a cost effective way to obtain survey data. The expense for obtaining basic demographic information, such as age, sex, family and employment, is shared by all participants and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

To participate or find more information, contact Lindsey Witt-Swanson at

Data collection will begin in July and end in the fall with client data and technical reports. The Bureau of Sociological Research will initiate discussions with prospective clients no later than May 12.
