Yes! The survey contains 55 questions and over 1,000 different data elements. Due to printing and timing limitations during the data collection process, we are unable to distribute all of these initially so we have selected the most frequently requested items for the Individual Custom Report. Additional information is available and may be requested based on your specific needs.
We take your privacy very seriously and take every precaution to ensure your trust is not violated. Your information is confidential, and we do not share your specific results with anyone but you. All information is aggregated and de-identified when shared publicly. Additionally, all information sent through the Internet is secured through password protection and firewall security.
Yes! You can complete the survey online in an average of about 30 to 60 minutes. Before you begin, you will need the following information available:
Additionally, if you need to take a break, the survey allows you to save your results and come back to them later. This feature is useful if you have to stop before you answer all of the questions or if you want to return to the survey to change an answer you previously entered.
If you would like to participate, you can access the survey by following these simple steps:
Open the survey site and click on 'Returning User? Please click here.' to enter the login area. Enter the e-mail address used last year and the password sample in the appropriate boxes. This will take you directly into the 2011 survey pre-populated with your responses from last year (or 2009 if that's when you last completed the survey).
Open the survey site. Create a new account by entering your company name, e-mail address, password, and confirm password information in the boxes below the label, 'Never taken the survey? Sign up for a New Account below.' Once your account is established, you will enter the 2011 survey and have ongoing access if you need to finish or modify your responses at a later time. Please note that each e-mail address within the survey database is unique to one response.
Note: E-mail addresses are necessary in order for respondents to save and view responses at a later time. We do not use e-mail addresses for any other purpose.
To participate in the Sample area survey, you need to have your response entered by July 2, 2012.
In May, we will be offering a seminar where you can receive your Individual Custom Report and participate in an interactive seminar presentation of the survey results. If you are unable to attend, we can arrange another time for you to receive your results.
