The U.S. Census Bureau’s Center for Behavioral Science Methods is conducting research to improve how it collects information about people living in households. Researchers would like to talk with people who live in households that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • At least 6 people
  • Three or more generations (e.g., grandparents, parents, grandchildren)
  • Distant relatives, such as nephews, nieces, cousins, in-laws, etc.
  • Not everyone is related to each other
  • Someone has moved in or out recently
  • Someone who lives in the household is away at school or for a job
  • A new baby (up to seven months old)
  • A friend or extended family member is staying temporarily with no set date to move out

Individuals who are interested in participating should complete a short questionnaire online.

Selected participants will be asked for their feedback on survey questions during interviews with Census Bureau staff. These interviews will be approximately 60 minutes and held via Microsoft Teams. Interviews will be conducted Jan. 10-31.

Participants will receive $40 upon completion of the study.

While current federal employees are allowed to participate in off-duty time, they are not eligible to receive the incentive payment.
