About the Deliberative Citizens Panel
The Center for Human Resources Research (CHRR) at The Ohio State University, a research center that has 55+ years of survey expertise and large data project management, currently operates the American Population Panel, also known as the APP. The APP is a group of volunteer members who agree to participate in social science and health related studies for research purposes conducted by CHRR. As of May 2022, there are more than 45,000 members of the APP.
IDEA and CHRR are currently collaborating to create a subset of the APP, tentatively called the Deliberative Citizens Panel. The goal for this panel is to create a representative panel of U.S. citizens who wish to participate in Deliberative Town Halls and other consultative constituent engagement.
