SummaryThe Nebraska Annual Social Indicators Survey (NASIS) aims to survey Nebraskans to create current, topical information about Nebraskans (ages 19 and older) and to monitor change in quality of life. The survey covers topics including environment, housing, health, Nebraska legislature, recreation, 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 2017 NASIS gauges opinions about engineering, immigration, human rights, natural resources, youth and community, sex offenders, 4-H, youth and community.
The ARDA has added six additional variables to the original data set to enhance the users' experience on our site.
Data FileCases: 1232
Weight Variable: HWAT, REG_WT, PWEIGHT
The data were weighted in three ways: the number of adults living in the household, non-response by state region, and poststratification weights on age, gender and state region. The first weight (HWAT) was used to adjust for within-household selection probability and the poststratification weights (PWEIGHT) were applied to better resemble the population.
