Participate in Studies or Surveys

Has Westat asked you or a family member to take part in a survey or study?

We conduct many research studies on behalf of local, state, and Federal Government agencies and nonprofit organizations.

Your role is important. By participating in a study, you can contribute to improving health care, safety standards, and education across our nation and around the world.

Your information is safe and secure. We will never use your name in a study report, and we will never share your personal facts or contact information with anyone else. We store all study information in secure facilities on locked systems and destroy personal data after the study is complete. Participation is strictly voluntary, and you may decide at any time not to continue.

Do you have questions about a particular study? Each study's set of rules is different. Please call the phone number you were given in your recruitment package.

Are you interested in helping us test materials for an upcoming survey or study?

Volunteers are needed to participate in focus groups and individual interviews to help us evaluate new survey questions and other study materials. Learn more about what's involved and how to participate.
