“Our study tracks couples who are going to relocate to a different city or country for one partner’s job/school in the upcoming year- at the (earliest) one month to (latest) one year from now.”
Our study tracks couples who are going to relocate for one partner’s job in the near future—a growing trend in our fast-paced, mobile world. The study involves an online survey that will be distributed prior to couples relocating, during the move (i.e. 5 brief biweekly surveys), and after the relocation (i.e. 3, 6, 9, and 12 months after). Given the longer-term commitment we require in this one-of-a-kind study, we want to emphasize that couples will be compensated appropriately for their valuable time and efforts (up to $120 CAD per person)
This study collects data using online methods and does not require you to come to the lab. Please check the methods section for details.
Initial survey approximately 2 months before the move, biweekly surveys for just under 3 consecutive months following the move (for a total of 5 biweekly assessments), and 4 additional follow-up surveys at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months post-move.
