Social Relations Study

Social Relations StudyProject Information:

This study is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The study is being led by the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center (SRC). SRC has done national and Detroit-area surveys for over 50 years. The SRC studies health, technology, family, relations, education, aging and more. Results of SRC surveys are frequently mentioned in the news.
The project director is Toni C. Antonucci, Ph.D.

Project Significance:

We are interested in learning about social relations & health. We collected data in 1992, 2005, and 2015. Now we are collecting similar information nearly 30 years after the original study launched. This study will tell us about family, friends, and daily life. The information will help people from young adulthood to old age. Results will guide health and family policies.

Participation in this study:

Participation is completely voluntary and participants may refuse to answer any or all questions. If you decide to participate in this study you will be a part of our brand new group! We want to know about YOU and YOUR experiences. Your responses will help policymakers create programs to improve quality of life.

Interview Information:

All interviewers are trained members from SRC. An interviewer will visit homes in the Wayne, Oakland and Macomb tri-county area, identify themselves and ask questions to see if a household qualifies. If a household member qualifies, then they will be invited to join the project. Questions will cover a wide range of topics including relationships with friends and family, health, memory and life experiences. There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. We would like to hear about the different experiences and opinions of each individual. We have found that people enjoy the interview.


All answers are treated confidentially. The information will be shared in scientific reports. All identifying information of participants will be removed from any results reported. Study participant identities will never be released.
