Have you ever been in a relationship with a person who had to register on a sex offender registry? We are interested in hearing about your experiences. The first 300 people will be entered into a raffle for (4) $100 & (12) $50 Amazon gift cards.
Purpose: You are being asked to participate in a research study which asks about your experiences being in a current or previous relationship with an individual who is required to register on the sex offender registry. All participants will complete a survey about your perceptions of your relationship, experiences related to their registration status, and how this impacts you overall.
Participants: You are being asked to participate based on your relationship with an individual who has been or is currently registered as a sex offender. You are not obligated to participate in this specific study.
Procedure: If you choose to participate, you will be asked to fill out an online survey which will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. The survey consists of a number of questions and is divided into several sections. You will be asked a variety of questions about your current/previous partner and the sex offense they were convicted of, your perceptions of your relationship, experiences related to your partner’s registration status, questions about your overall well-being, and other demographic questions. Additionally, we will ask if you are interested in a follow-up interview for future research or if your partner would be interested in participating in research. These questions will be asked in a separate browser so the data collected is separate from your survey responses.
The first 300 participants to complete the survey will be entered into a raffle for (2) $100 and (6) $50 Amazon gift card codes. Individuals must complete 80% of the survey, 144 questions to receive payment. To get your code, you will need to click and open the link on the last page and enter your email address.
