IRP is the sole provider of survey samples and contact lists for surveys. This allows us to stratify population samples to minimize survey fatigue, ensure consistency in the information provided, and to ensure that students on the ‘Do Not Contact’ list are excluded. The preferred way to request a survey sample is to use the IRP Data Request Form.
We strongly discourage the use of "full sample" population requests. The use of a full sample population usually is not needed or required, as a representative sample of your target population will provide significant resolution and power to interpret survey results. For more information about determining a representative sample size for your survey see the Qualtrics Support article, Calculating Sample Size, and download their free step-by-step guide.
