Survey on Student Debt

by Stephen Petrina on May 6, 2013

Survey on student debt, put together by One Wisconsin Now & Institute.  The response so far has been amazing, however,  input is still needed!

Some of the insights we hope to ascertain from this project include:

  • How is the trillion-dollar student debt crisis affecting a household’s purchasing ability?
  • Are student loans affecting auto and home ownership?
  • How about savings for retirement, or for the next generation’s college?
  • Are there opportunities to change the way we finance higher education?
  • Do we need a way to alter the existing debt structure on student loans?

If you haven’t already taken the survey, please take a few minutes of your time to complete it by clicking here:  Student Loan Survey

Just seven minutes of your time will be a huge boost for our shared fight to raise awareness and develop real solutions.

The survey questions that follow ask you about your household circumstances, using questions that are similar to those asked by the U.S. Census Bureau. The survey is designed to honor your privacy and does not collect personally identifiable information such as birth date, social security number, address, or, naturally, your name. Survey respondents will be truly anonymous.

After taking the survey, please share it with friends, family, neighbors and co-workers via Twitter, Facebook & email.

If, after taking the survey, you feel that your story is not adequately captured by the survey, feel free to email your specific story to:

Thank you for all you do and for your help on this critical research project.
