PALCUS INDEX - NATIONAL COMMUNITY SURVEY - 2019

2nd Edition is now open!

You are invited to participate in 2nd edition of our survey,
the PALCUS INDEX – NATIONAL COMMUNITY SURVEY.

This survey is conducted by PALCUS in order to gain a better understanding of our Portuguese-American communities. In this survey, United States residents who are Portuguese or of Portuguese descent are asked to complete a questionnaire that asks about their demographic and socioeconomic characteristics as well as their community concerns. The first edition in 2017 was successful not only in terms of participation but in that it informed the agenda of the Inaugural Portuguese-American National Conference in Washington, D.C. in June of 2018.

It will take approximately 15 minutes to complete the questionnaire. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary but very necessary and appreciated. It is important for us to learn your opinions.
 
Your survey responses will be strictly confidential and data from this research will be reported only in the aggregate. Design and analysis is provided by Dulce Maria Scott, PhD, PALCUS Research Consultant and Professor of Sociology and Criminal Justice, Anderson University, Anderson, IN.

Take the survey in Englishhttps://palcusindexsurvey2019-english.questionpro.com
