Surveys are valuable medical research tools because they efficiently capture information vital to a variety of research interests. Participants in the All of Us Research Program respond to surveys spanning a variety of topics, including demographics, health care, and lifestyle.

The program has tested each survey for readability and accessibility. We use cognitive interviews and quantitative testing. This testing process included people from different educational backgrounds and geographic locations to capture a sample that reflects the U.S. population.

After participants complete the core surveys (The Basics, Overall Health, and Lifestyle), they may complete additional surveys on health care access, personal and family medical history, and other topics.
