Get The Most Out Of Your Youth Fieldwork: A Sneak Peek At YouthSight’s 2018

Fieldwork Tips | 26 Mar 2018


Your budget’s been approved; your questionnaire’s complete; and you’re all set to get the ball rolling on your most exciting research project to date. There’s just one problem – you can’t find enough young respondents anywhere.

At YouthSight, we know how difficult it can be to find the right supplier – and how frustrating it can be to settle for one (or even two) that aren’t quite up to the job. That’s why we’re giving you a sneak peek at our panel recruitment schedule for the next twelve months so that you can keep your youth sampling hassle-free all year round.

Check out the timeline below to ensure you maximise your youth respondent pool and get the most out of your fieldwork.

Say hello to our Super Sweet 16 & 17-year-olds!

Insider Tip: For a super fast turnaround on fieldwork (in 2017, we saw response rates of over 80%!) or for direct access to 16 & 17-year-olds, plan your fieldwork between March and June 2018.



Save the Date: It’s Freshers 2018!

Insider Tip: Struggling to find enough respondents studying Basket Weaving or Ancient Hieroglyphics? Get in touch in September to make accessing niche student sample hassle-free.



Is there a doctor in the house? Absolutely!

Last year, we had over 5000 Oxbridge, Medicine and Veterinary Science applicants join the OpinionPanel Community before November (and that’s not to mention the extra 25,000 prospective students that joined us before the end of January).

Insider Tip: With over 30,000 prospective students forecast to be joining our 140,000-strong panel in Autumn/Winter, ensure you take advantage of our largest sample group by conducting fieldwork between November 2018 and July 2019. 


That’s the rundown for 2018: plenty of 16-17-year-olds and 30,000 brand new students and university applicants – and that’s not to mention the 140,000 Millennials and Gen Z that already form our vibrant and passionate OpinionPanel Community.
