Data Collection Services

The ISRC offers a variety of data collection services including: consultation on survey project design and instruments, phone-based data collection, web-based data collection, mail survey data collection, mixed-mode data collections, focus groups, mail, data entry and other services that support researchers.

The ISRC  has field staff that are extensively trained in survey methodology, data collection technology,  and all have been certified through the UI Human Subjects Office’s CITI human subjects’ tutorial for IRB02 (and many cross-trained for IRB01) data collection.

Field staff performs services in close accordance with the American Association of Public Opinion Researchers (AAPOR) Standards and Best Practices to foster standardization and high quality results so our projects may be more easily replicated and endure over time.

ISRC staff is available for consultation on survey research issues.  To discuss survey research needs or inquire for further details, contact isrc-info@uiowa.edu or complete the following form.
