The SCF is a study occurring every three years which gains critical insights into the economic circumstances of American families. It is the only systemic source of data available to policy-makers concerned with inflation, unemployment, interest rates, and national saving. The SCF is funded by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB). ABOUT FIELD INTERVIEWERS: NORC field interviewers are vital to our nationwide survey research operation. We talk to people from every conceivable walk of life in person to obtain information on issues such as health care, employment, and education. The interview is the basic tool by which we are able to provide this data and as the interviewer, you'll have the ability to make that possible. The work we do at NORC has lasting social significance: the data we gather helps legislators and policy-makers determine the best course of action for the welfare of all Americans. Examples of NORC field projects include:* An evaluation of whether a new community policing strategy is effective at reducing crime and increasing public safety while maintaining good community-police relations.* A project that is the most important source of data about the lives of adults and young adults in the U.S. since 1979. Many respondents have participated in this survey since the commencement.* A study which gathers data about families' need for child care and the availability of child care in their communities.* A project which combines interview questions, biomeasures (height, weight, blood spots), and information about participant's location to advance our understanding of activity spaces older Americans live in during their day to day lives, and how that changes as they age.* An ongoing study which collects key details about financial assets and liabilities from households in all income brackets so that the sponsor can understand how the economy is changing. REQUIRED SKILLS:* Interviewers are expected to follow the Basic Interviewing Techniques as described in their training.* Assignments may vary based on the number of Respondents in specified locations.
