Online College Social Life Survey

The Online College Social Life Survey was designed by Paula England and collected between Autumn 2005-Spring 2011 at twenty-one four-year colleges and universities in the United States. This page includes the questionnaire, data, an online codebook, and a list of articles which make use of these data. Contact England for questions about the survey and questionnaire, or Jonathan Bearak for questions about the codebook and source code. Researchers who wish to use OCSLS data should check with their University IRB before using it to see what they require. Often, school IRBs will assign research using the data exempt status given that it is anonymous secondary data.
