Adolescents and their parents enrolled in the World Trade Center Health Registry now have until September 30, 2012 to complete the Registry’s survey. This update, the third since the terrorist attacks, was sent to enrollees in November of 2011 and seeks information from the approximately 1,300 Registry enrollees currently under 18.
Only 40% of the surveys sent out to registrants under 18 have been returned. The third survey for adults over the age of 18, which is also in progress now, currently has a 63% response rate.
There is a great need for a statistically meaningful sample, particularly from the relatively small groups such as adolescents.
The brief, 24-question survey for adolescents can be taken over the phone by calling 866-692-9827 or you can print a PDF online by clicking here.
