HINTS 4 Overview and Schedule
To address emerging issues in the field of health communication more quickly while
still maintaining the ongoing measurement of trends, HINTS 4 will include five data
collection cycles over the course of 3 years. The instrument for each data collection
cycle will include a core module of common items for trending in addition to special
topic modules to be implemented only in some of the cycles, increasing capacity
of the HINTS instruments to include a broader array of topics and measures. The
combined sample size for all five cycles of HINTS 4 will be greater than 17,000
respondents, more than twice the size of previous rounds of HINTS data collections.
