FY2011 Annual Survey Update
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
The FY2011 Annual Survey will be fielded January 25, 2012.
The survey instruments are now available on the 2011 Annual Survey web page at http://www.naquitline.org/?page=2011Survey.
Below are some important highlights for the FY2011 survey process:
The FY2011 survey will be fielded in January and
February 2012 using Survey Monkey (the same system we used for the budget
survey in the fall of 2011). The Survey Monkey web collection interface will
open January 25.
A few clarifications were added to the survey
questions and instructions based on feedback we received from members. You can
view the revised survey here. While the Survey Monkey data collection system
will not open until January 25, quitlines can begin collecting the necessary
information as of today. PLEASE NOTE
there are different versions
of the survey for US and for Canadian quitlines; please make sure to download
the correct versions.
webinar for the annual survey will be held on Wednesday, January 25, from
1:00-2:30 p.m. Eastern time (10:00-11:30 am Pacific time). The training webinar
is optional, and will be recorded. The webinar access information, agenda,
slides, and recording will be posted on the NAQC annual survey web page. Additional information will be distributed to all survey responders on
January 17. If there are new staff members who should receive this information,
please contact Natalia Gromov at email@example.com.
PERSON from each quitline should be tasked with entering item responses for
the entire survey. Survey respondents should circulate the PDF or Word versions
of the survey to collect all necessary information prior to entering data in
Survey Monkey. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
person entering survey data into Survey Monkey will be able to re-enter the
survey at any point; not all data must be entered at one time unless your computer system does not allow Survey
Monkey to recognize you when you return to the survey. Instructions for
determining whether this will affect you are included on the first page of the
Survey Monkey interface.
For more information about this year’s survey and the
training call, please visit the 2011 survey page.
We realize that you have many competing priorities and
commitments, and we thank you for taking the time to complete the survey every
year. Without your help we could not collect this valuable information. As
always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
