POLLS AND SURVEYS ABOUT PARENTS, PARENTING, AND FAMILIES.                                                                       Update: December, 2004

This template contains some of the most recent survey and polls about families, parents, and parenting. Whenever possible, links to websites are identified to assist you in locating the study
or report so that you may read it in its entirety. If you are planning to survey parents, we hope that you will consider using existing questionnaires so that we can build a larger body of
knowledge about parents and parenting. If we ask some of the same questions, we can compare our answers across communities.
