Interviews will be conducted for two projects:

  • National Core Indicators- Wyoming In-Person Survey (NCI-IPS)

This temporary project starts the week of November 14, 2022, and will last until mid-May 2023 (or until all interviews are completed). There will be mandatory two-day training in early November and additional training in the form of webinars and self-paced modules will occur. Interviewers must agree to schedule and conduct on average 8 interviews a week, each lasting 30-45 minutes.
