Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey, 2012
SummaryThe Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS) aims to survey quality of life in the state of Nebraska, covering topics such as the environment, housing, health, recreation, occupation, education, family life, among others. A set of core questions are repeated each year, and additional questions are purchased by those interested in gathering additional data. The 2011 NASIS asks questions about the Nebraska Department of Roads, trees and forests, water planning, wind energy, climate change, community trust, impressions about UNL, government policies, female sex offenders, personal finances, and mental health.
The ARDA has added six additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.

"The data were weighted in three ways to account for the within household probability of selection, nonresponse, and population characteristics. First, data were weighted by the number of adults living in the household in order to adjust for within-household selection probability. Then, the data were weighted for nonresponse by state region. . . . Lastly, poststratification weights were applied based on age, gender and state region in order for the data to more closely resemble the population."
