HINTS 5 Overview and Schedule
To address emerging issues in the field of health communication more
quickly while still maintaining the ongoing measurement of trends,
HINTS 5 will include four data collection cycles over the course of
4 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.
Additionally, a second cycle of HINTS-FDA will be fielded in 2017. The
combined sample size for all four cycles of HINTS 5 and additional cycle of
HINTS-FDA data will be greater than 17,000 respondents. If you would like

5 instruments will be coming soon.
