Q-Bank is a collaborative resource for question evaluation. Q-Bank collects question evaluation studies from federal statistical agencies and research organizations. Question evaluation studies:

  • Improve question design and the validity of survey data.

  • Provide necessary evidence for survey managers to demonstrate their survey collects the data it purports to collect.

  • Support data users by providing useful information to more fully understand and better interpret data used in their own research.

Q-Bank allows you to search for tested survey questions and access those evaluation studies.
