Types of Research

​AMI is committed to learning more about the interests of the disability community in Canada. Panel members will be asked, at different times during the year, to participate in information-gathering projects, which may include:

Focus Groups 

​A focus group is a form of research in which a group of people share their perceptions, opinions, beliefs and attitudes toward a product, service, concept or advertisement. Questions are asked by a moderator in an interactive group setting.

Online Surveys 

​Online surveys are usually used with a large group of people so the answers can be statistically reviewed and analyzed. This type of survey can range from being short with just a couple of questions or long with in-depth areas being explored with many questions.

Telephone Interviews 

​A telephone interview is a process of data collection using a standardized questionnaire and calling panel members. It is a great alternative when online access isn't the preference for respondents.
