If so, you may be eligible to participate in the National Domestic Workers Survey Project, the first national survey of domestic workers in the United States!

Approximately 2,300 nannies, house cleaners and caregivers will be surveyed in 14 major metropolitan areas representing every region of the country. The survey is being conducted in nine languages.
If participants qualify, they will receive a small compensation for completing the survey and will have the chance to make history by participating in the first national survey of domestic workers in the United States!!!
The survey is confidential and anonymous!

  1. I'm a surveyor for the Boston area. Definitely feel free to email me with any questions or to set a time up to be interviewed!

  2. Hey everyone,contrary to some of the comments in response to national survey currently underway by the National Domestic Workers Alliance (NDWA), please be advised that in order to qualify to participate in the NDWA study, you need to be residing in one of the geographical locations listed above, be paid by either the owner of the home or a family member of whom you work for, have worked more than six hours in the last week, be 18 years of age or older and not be a member of a union/organization that protects your rights at the workplace. This is participatory research project is designed to document the demographics, wages, working conditions, and training needs in the domestic work industry and not a study that gathers data that reflects bad jobs only. The compensation offered is not unique to the NDWA study, but a standard award offered to participants of any research project.I hope up this clears up any confusion regarding compensation and participation with the survey.Best,Helen Panagiotopoulos
