Survey by Black Youth Project. Methodology: Conducted by AP-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, June 23 - July 10, 2017 and based on 1,836 telephone and online interviews. Sample: National adult age 18-34. 1726 respondents were interviewed online, and 110 by telephone. The GenForward survey was built from two sample sources: 65% of the completed interviews are sourced from NORC's AmeriSpeak Panel. AmeriSpeak is a probability based panel that also uses address-based sample but sourced from the NORC National Frame with enhanced sample coverage. During the initial recruitment phase of the AmeriSpeak panel, randomly selected US households were sampled with a known, non-zero probability of selection and then contacted by US mail, email, telephone, and field interviewers (face-to-face). 35% of the completed interviews are sourced from the Black Youth Project (BYP) panel of young adults recruited by NORC. The BYP sample is from a probability-based household panel that uses an address-based sample from a registered voter database of the entire US. Households were selected using stratified random sampling to support over-sampling of households with African Americans, Latinxs, and Asian Americans ages 18-34. NORC contacted sampled households by US mail and by telephone, inviting them to register and participate in public opinion surveys twice a month. [USNORC.091217AGF.R07BA] (View Citation)
