Report of the Director
 
 

This past year has been one of transitions for the Survey Research Laboratory (SRL). Richard Warnecke stepped down as director in May 1996. (His accomplishments were formally recognized at a reception held in April 1997.) As acting director, I have personally relished the challenge of maintaining the standard of exceptional leadership he set during his 15-year tenure. As SRL has become more fully integrated into the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA), we have had the opportunity to strengthen our working relationships with staff and faculty from other CUPPA programs and research centers. Our move in late 1997 to CUPPA=s new home, the Alumni Hall South Building on South Peoria Street, should serve to further strengthen these relationships.
 
 

We also are fortunate to have been able to continue our long-standing relationships with other units of the Urbana-Champaign and Chicago campuses, as well as faculty from other universities and several agencies of the state of Illinois. To make our services available to a greater number of groups and individuals in Illinois, we began planning an annual statewide omnibus survey that will provide those who may not have the means to finance customized surveys with the opportunity to collect city, metropolitan, and statewide survey data in a cost-effective manner.
 
 

In 1996–1997, SRL again finished with a balanced ledger, thanks in large measure to the financial management system implemented by Dr. Warnecke earlier in the decade and operated so efficiently by Marguerite Harris and her staff. Several long-term research projects that were initiated during 1995–1996 continued through 1996–1997, and some will continue into 1997–1998, providing SRL a healthy funding foundation. We are investing heavily in the development of research proposals that will insure our continued viability in the years ahead.
 
 

SRL=s staff continued a long tradition of service to the survey research profession by chairing, coordinating, and serving on program committees of several professional conferences, serving on the editorial boards of several professional journals, and preparing Survey Research newsletter, which serves as an instrument of communication among and about academic and not-for-profit survey research organizations around the world. Thirteen members of the SRL staff gave conference presentations during 1996-1997, providing further evidence of our staff’s ongoing commitment to the profession and their own professional development. Those of our most senior staff who serve on national advisory boards enhance both their own well-deserved reputations and that of SRL.
 
 

Serving as acting director during this past year has been both a privilege and an education. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all SRL staff for their diligence, dedication, and loyalty in the face of the inevitable adversities that complex organizations must sometimes face. Without their creativity and effort, there would be no SRL. In addition, I would like also to specifically acknowledge several individuals who have been reliable and constant sources of sound advice. These include Marguerite Harris, Diane O=Rourke, Al Schorsch, Seymour Sudman, Richard Warnecke, and Wim Wiewel. Finally, the success of the Survey Research Laboratory should also be attributed to the countless anonymous individuals who have taken the time to participate in one of our surveys during this past year. Their contributions have provided us all with a better insight into the social environment we share and struggle to understand.
 
 


 
 

SRL Studies
 
 

The Survey Research Laboratory was involved in 51 new and continuing studies in 1996–1997, ranging from large, multiyear studies to small service projects. This section presents brief summaries of these studies and a table of the affiliations of the sponsors of these studies.
 
 

SRL’s special research focus on survey methodology continued in 1996–1997. Over half of SRL’s studies for 1996–1997 were health related, making health SRL’s major area of substantive research, as it has been for a number of years. Major areas of research activity included smoking cessation, cancer screening and prevention, and substance abuse. Several studies centered on minority health issues. Other major study areas included aging, crime, educational institutions, and the environment.

New Studies

From July 1, 1996 through June 30, 1997, SRL staff and clients initiated 23 new studies. Of these 23 studies, 14 were for University of Illinois clients (Chicago and Urbana-Champaign campuses), five for other academic institutions, three for government agencies, and one for other organizations. Eight of the 23 were direct awards to SRL staff as principal investigators. (See Grants and Contracts listings in Staff Activities section for more information on these studies.)

777 Adult Suicide Prevention

Janet Grossman, UIC Institute for Juvenile Research, commissioned this study involving two focus groups with mothers of youths seen in the emergency department of Riverside Hospital in Kankakee, Illinois, for attempted suicide. It tested a theory of readiness and parent action in restricting the youths’ access to firearms.

778 Henry Horner Redevelopment Study

The purpose of this study for Susan Popkin, Abt Associates Inc, funded by the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation, was to assess the Henry Horner economic redevelopment project in Chicago, including efforts to integrate the residents into the larger community. SRL conducted focus groups and cognitive interviews with Horner residents as part of questionnaire development. Face-to-face interviews with 500 residents began in January 1997. Victoria Gwiasda, SRL, was co-principal investigator.

779 Sickle Cell Disease: Moving from Child Care to Adult Care

Focus groups were conducted with adolescents and young adults with sickle cell disease and with their parents and medical practitioners on the experiences and concerns of people with the disease as they move from child-centered to adult-centered care. The results will be used to develop a transitional protocol to reduce the number of patients lost to follow-up in the transition to adult-centered care. The study is being funded by the Chicago Health Policy Research Council. The principal investigator is Elizabeth Hauser, SRL.

780 Mental Health Service Utilization Among Adolescents

This pilot for a study proposed by Michael Fendrich UIC Department of Psychiatry, Catherine Nageotte, UIC Psychiatric Institute Research Infrastructure Support Program, and Timothy Johnson, SRL, evaluated the validity of mental health service using information provided by parents about their children. It allowed the development of clearer hypotheses about salience of reporting-validity issues in services research and about the cognitive processes associated with service use reporting error. A sample of 200 cases was selected for telephone interviews and medical records abstraction.

781 Pilot Survey of Female Veterans

A convenience sample of 200 female veterans seen at a Veterans Affairs clinic were interviewed face-to-face on whether their mental and physical health needs were met and on the quality of service. This pilot survey was for Linda Grossman, Program for Mental Health Services Research on Women and Gender, UIC Psychiatric Institute.

782 Survey of Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, and Biotechnical Organizations

This study was conducted for David Dranove, Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University, and Burt Weisbrod, Department of Economics, Northwestern University, with funds from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Questionnaires were mailed to 109 medical device, pharmaceutical, and biotechnical companies to assess the extent of their research and development projects and the long-term implications of those projects. Information was received from 58 of the companies.

783 Cognitive Functioning of Elderly

Cognitive interviews were conducted by telephone or face-to-face in December 1996 with 62 persons aged 70 or older to test theoretical and applied issues related to the answering of cognitive functioning questions by elderly respondents. Seymour Sudman, SRL, was principal investigator for the professional services contract awarded to SRL by the National Center for Health Statistics for this work.

784 Prevention Center Behavioral Risk Factor Network

This project provided funding for Timothy Johnson, SRL, to participate in the newly organized Prevention Center Behavorial Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) Network, which coordinates activities among university-based researchers who are conducting analyses of BRFSS data.
 
 

785 1996 Survey of Governmental Objectives

SRL contributed 30 interviews of Illinois residents for this study done in collaboration with 40 different survey organizations, each in a different state. The goal is to put together a national data set to be available through the University of California at Berkeley.

With funds from the National Institute on Aging, 500 telephone interviews with discharge planners at rural hospitals are being conducted for Mary Fennell, Brown University, to gain a better understanding of the organizational structures that link rural hospitals to long-term care providers.

787 Vehicle Arresting Barriers (VABs)

With funds from the Illinois Department of Transportation, Fred Coleman, UIUC Department of Civil Engineering, asked SRL to conduct face-to-face interviews with drivers stopped for trains at three railroad crossings at which experimental vehicle-arresting barriers would be set up. Three waves of data collection are planned: one prior to the installation of the barriers (conducted in spring 1997), one right after installation, and another one month later. The last two waves will be conducted in 1998 after the barriers are operational.

788 Addictions Disability Study

As of January 1997, substance abuse is no longer considered a disability by the Social Security Administration. This study, funded by the Illinois Department of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse (DASA) and the State Systems Development Program, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is assessing the effects of the loss of SSI payments on the individuals who are now ineligible. Data collection, which began in late 1996, will continue in 6-month intervals through 1998. The principal investigator is Paul Goldstein, Treatment Alternatives for Special Clients, Inc.

789 Community Alternative Policing Strategies (CAPS)

For this annual telephone survey of Chicago residents to be completed in August 1997 for Susan Hartnett, Center for Urban Affairs and Policy Research, Northwestern University, 1,800 computer-assisted telephone interviews are to be conducted about community policing and crime in respondents’ neighborhoods. The source of funds is the National Institute of Justice.

790 Potential Use of APS

Timothy Johnson, SRL, is the principal investigator for this study being funded by the Illinois Coalition, a not-for-profit organization of leaders from academia, labor, industry, and government. Questionnaires were mailed to 200 research-and-development professionals (who were given the option to complete an interview by telephone or return the questionnaire by mail) to assess their desire and need for a program to open the Advanced Photon Source (APS) at Argonne National Laboratory to technology-based companies in Illinois.

791 Women Consumer/Survivor Needs Assessment Survey

To provide data for a national survey on the needs of women who have been diagnosed with mental illness, three focus groups (one with Caucasian women, one with African American women, and one with Latinas) were conducted.

The principal investigator is Marla Gursh, IDOC.

1029 CIS Program Project Survey Core

SRL is conducting the survey work for this multiple-study program project of which the goal is to test intervention strategies relative to information dissemination and behavior change. In Project 1, "Five-a-Day for Better Health," callers to the Cancer Information Service (CIS) Hotline were interviewed on their nutritional habits and the amount of fruits and vegetables eaten each day. Four-week follow-ups to these interviews were conducted by telephone with 1,672 cases; of these, 1,286 were interviewed at 4 months. In addition, a 24-hour dietary recall pilot study was conducted by telephone. Project 2 focuses on the impact of an outcall from CIS or the AMC Cancer Research Center on women’s health habits and attitudes toward breast cancer and mammography 6 months after the out call. Women aged 50 or older were screened by telephone and put into an experimental or control group. SRL completed 6-month follow-ups with 2,168 of these women. Survey work for Project 3 consisted of conducting 6-month follow-up telephone interviews with African American smokers who called a CIS toll-free number in response to a smoking cessation media campaign. The program project principal investigator is Al Marcus, AMC Cancer Research Center and the survey core principal investigator is Richard Warnecke, SRL.

1499.4, 1599.5 Smoking Program Project

Project Development
 
 

A substantial portion of SRL staff time is devoted to developing budgets and research proposals for both internal and external clients. During 1996–1997, the Survey Research Laboratory staff was involved in the development of 23 new pending projects and continued development on 10 projects still pending as of July 1, 1996. Projects developed and funded during 1996–1997 are described in the previous SRL Studies section. Projects that were still pending as of June 30, 1997, whether new in 1996–1997 or continued from previous year, are described in the following two sections. Table 2 lists those projects that were no longer under development as of June 30, 1997.
