American Population Panel Advancing Science for the Common Good

03 Newsletter | Spring 2018

As a member of the American Population Panel,

you will be asked periodically to participate in research studies. The APP is not a marketing panel and will not sell or share your personal information, it is simply used to match you to different surveys.

The time between surveys depends upon the number of surveys we field and whether your demographic information matches survey requirements. It is not uncommon to go several months without receiving a survey.

Once you have been matched with a particular study, you will be notified with instructions for completing the survey and how much the survey will pay. It is your option whether or not to participate in a chosen survey. You may also opt out of the panel at any time.

If you have additional questions, please contact us at: or 866-448-6075.
