Research Volunteer Identification

The Integrating Special Populations Program's research volunteer identification service helps research teams identify targeted underrepresented and underserved research participants.

The service helps investigators plan studies and recruit and enroll participants in a way that represents regional populations proportionally by factors including:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Ethnicity
  • Rural status
  • Socioeconomic status

The research volunteer identification service provides investigative teams with lists of potentially eligible individuals based on socioeconomic status, as defined by the HOUSES index, and rural classification, as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.

This service enables researchers to more effectively and efficiently reach special populations and meet recruiting goals. The Integrating Special Populations Program provides research volunteer identification services in collaboration with the HOUSES Research Program (must be logged in to the Mayo Clinic network) and CCaTS' Community Engagement in Research Program.
