Subject:Re: Web-based Surveys of Teens

Dear Dr. Wurtele, I'm directing a project that recently conducted a web-based survey of victimization and delinquency among American Indian and Alaska Native youth. We used several recruiting strategies with the primary one being a website where youth could learn about the project and sign up for the survey. We surveyed youth aged 18-25 because of the complexities of obtaining parental consent. The survey was retrospective covering experiences up to age 18 years, and anonymous. We included a national suicide hotline number at the foot of every page of the survey. Most importantly, we offered all participants a $10 electronic gift card for Amazon.com. This last feature was helpful in recruiting participants, but also attracted attention from "hackers" and forced us to introduce a password that made recruiting much more difficult. I'd be happy to share more info off-line or connect you with the PI's. Kathryn Harding, M.A. Research Project Director Prevent Child Abuse America 228 S.
