The director of TAPS, in consultation with other scholars, has established a battery of demographic and other questions that are asked of all panelists. In addition, a large set of recurring questions is asked about economic and political subjects. The schedule for recurring questions—some monthly, some less frequently—is provided in the Recurring Questions section below. In addition to recurring questions, research modules of up to 15 minutes may be placed on each month’s survey. The TAPS director works with investigators to schedule research modules taking into account research needs and the necessity of maintaining the panel.
