TESS Special Competition Using Targeted Samples

Time-sharing Experiments for the Social Sciences (TESS) is an NSF-funded initiative. Investigators propose survey experiments to be fielded using a nationally representative US adults sample via NORC at the University of Chicago's probability-based AmeriSpeak® Panel.

Most TESS studies involve general population samples. We are excited to announce here a Special Opportunity for researchers to propose survey experiments to be conducted on targeted populations of adults – that is, subgroups of the US population that include only people who share specific characteristics.

In terms of specifics:

Parameters are otherwise the same for other TESS proposals, and the instructions and requirements for these are provided at http://www.tessexperiments.org. These details should be reviewed by anyone wishing to apply.

For any other questions, please contact tess.experiments@gmail.com. Also, as with all TESS proposals, investigators whose proposals are successful will subsequently need to obtain IRB approval from their home institutions before their experiment can be fielded.

The deadline for proposals is March 15, 2022.
