Pilot Survey Findings

During November 2012, Ipsos MORI conducted interviews with parents across 5 Improving Futures projects as part of the pilot stage of the Improving Futures survey. We’d like to thank the projects involved for all of their help in running the pilot and for giving their feedback on the piloting process.

The pilot survey proved to be successful: parents were happy to take part in an interview, and generally found it to be a good experience.  The pilot survey has helped to identify some areas where we can make improvements when we run the main survey this spring. As you know, we are asking project staff to help identify families eligible for the survey and to schedule appointments with them, and the pilot has helped to show how we can manage this more smoothly.

We found that the number of parents eligible to be interviewed in the pilot varied between projects, and was sometimes slightly lower than we’d expected.  We have recently circulated a questionnaire to all projects to find out how many families you are likely to have in the coming months that will be eligible for the survey. Being able to get an accurate estimate of eligible families is really important in helping us plan fieldwork for the main stage of the survey. Many of the projects have already returned the questionnaire, but if you haven’t, please do send back the questionnaire as soon as you can.

We are planning to begin the sampling of families for the main stage survey in March 2013, and then begin conducting interviews in April 2013. We will be asking for help from project staff in contacting families and scheduling interviews from March, and will be in touch with projects directly to discuss this in more detail.

If you have any questions about any aspect of the Ipsos MORI survey, please email improvingfutures@ipsos.com, and a member of the Ipsos MORI team will be happy to help you.

A summary of the findings of the pilot survey can be found here.
