NASIS Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey, Previous Core Items (2018), Bureau of Sociological Research, Department of Sociology, University of Nebraska


Copyright © 2018 University of Nebraska


The NASIS survey varies from year to year depending on client needs, but every year a core group of items consisting of common demographics and quality of life measures are included. These include, for example, age, sex, education, community satisfaction, etc (for complete list, see below). These items are asked each year to provide key demographic information to all users of NASIS as well as comparability to other social indicator information.

The core items were reduced in 2018 in an effort to keep NASIS costs as low as possible and reduce respondent burden. You can find the current core items and previously asked core items below. Researchers are able to add previous core items back into the NASIS as part of their purchased space.
