Westat is currently seeking motivated and detail-oriented individuals to be Field Interviewers on the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) study. PATH collects information on tobacco use and examines attitudes about tobacco use as well as the short- and long-term health effects of such use.
Interviewers are required to locate sampled addresses, screen household members, and interview sampled adults and youth in their homes for a longitudinal study. Interviewers will ask some respondents for biological samples. The interview and samples collection process are expected to last approximately 2 hours.
Interviewers regularly receive and transmit data via the internet and report progress and costs to their supervisor.
The PATH Study employs a multi-mode approach to data collection. Interviewers are required to collect data primarily in person but can be collected by phone if the respondent prefers. In-person interviews will be conducted ONLY in geographical areas that are deemed safe from COVID-19, and Field Interviewers will be required to use PPE items.
Protecting the health and safety of our employees and survey participants is a top priority for Westat. Based on recommendations from the CDC and other public health authorities, we require staff to protect and monitor their health while working on their assignment, which may regular testing for COVID-19 or other screening activities.
