This project also has a 1,000 adult respondent online panel survey assessing media messages. (4/05/18; $49, 981 and 3/01/15; $27,000).
Principal Investigator, “Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), State of Maryland 2018 - 2020.” PRAMS is a CDC-sponsored population-based surveillance system designed to identify and monitor pertinent maternal experiences, habits, and behaviors that occur before and during a mother’s pregnancy. PRAMS requires strict adherence to CDC guidelines for all aspects of data collection. This project calls for just telephone surveys for those not completing the mailed survey distributed by the State of Maryland Department of Health (3-year project; amount $183,592).
Principal Investigator, “Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), State of Indiana 2017 - 2018.” PRAMS is a CDC-sponsored population-based surveillance system designed to identify and monitor “select maternal experiences and behaviors that occur before and during pregnancy and during the child’s early infancy . . .” (PRAMS Indiana RFP 17-063, 4:2016). PRAMS requires strict adherence to CDC guidelines for all aspects of data collection. Data are collected by way of a sequential mixed mode survey process; mailed surveys and then telephone surveys for those not completing the mailed survey (two-year project; amount $184,592).
Principal Investigator, “Health Assessment and Research for Communities (HARC) 2016 and 2013 (Co-Principal Investigator).” This repeat customer and BRFSS-like project sought to learn the health-related behaviors, attitudes, and needs (present and future) of 2,500 randomly selected, landline and cellular respondents (English and Spanish). Of the 2,500 completed interviews, 500 were “child by proxy” interviews in which the most knowledgeable adult was asked questions about the child selected for interview. Drawing from existing research, I developed a random respondent selection process that cut time for respondent selection in half (2013; $280,000 and 2016; $250,000).
Co-Principal Investigator, Ohio Department of Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services, Gambling Ohio Survey. This survey sought to establish a baseline of gambling behaviors and attitudes and consisted of five individual projects: Four oversampled county telephone surveys (Cuyahoga, Lucas, Lancaster, and Franklin), and a statewide survey of Ohio residents (Six-month project; grant amount: $180,000).
