Korean American Survey

Just got this in the email box:

(한국어 안내문은 아래 있습니다 — 꼭 읽어 주시기 바랍니다)

Dear Community Leader:

We ask for your assistance in participating and distributing the Korean American National Survey. The online and Korean language media outlet campaign officially launched May 1, 2008 and runs until the end of the month. The goal of the Korean American National Survey (KANS 2008) is to create the first and largest-scale comprehensive portrait of the Korean-American community across the nation with approximately 10,000 respondents!

The survey is completely bilingual and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. The resulting database of information will be the largest-ever for Korean Americans and will be made available as open source, impacting scholars, community leaders, non-profit agencies as well as U.S. and Korean government agencies trying to better understand and serve Korean Americans.

To participate in the survey, please go to: www.koreanamericannationalsurvey.org or www.kansurvey.org .

To encourage participation we have prepared some raffle prizes. One must complete the survey to be eligible and prizes include:

– 2 Free Roundtrip Tickets to Seoul, Korea (1st prize – 1 winner)
– 1 Big Screen Television (2nd prize – 1 winner)
– 1 iPod (3rd prize – 5 winners)

Korean-Americans have traditionally been UNDER-counted in most surveys, including the comprehensive US National Census. Having a large-scale database for our community, such as this, will go a long way towards increasing our community’s power to advocate for more federal and state services as well as corporate marketing dollars!

Please assist us by reaching out to your networks and organizations in distributing and encouraging participation in this survey! The most easily distributed format will be online – but we are more than happy to provide hard copies to those who request them. Thank you again for your assistance and let us know if you have any questions.

Below is language about the survey in Korean.

2008년 5월1일자로 론칭이된 “재미한인전국조사” (Korean American National Survey: KANS 2008)는 한달간 집중적으로 미국전역에 있는 한인계를 대상으로 진행됩니다. 종합적인 이번 설문조사는 최소한 1만명의 설문응답을 목표로 하고 있어 – 최대 규모의 재미한인 조사가 되며 이에따라 앞으로 정부, 사회, 교육기관에게도 크게 영향을 미치게 됩니다.

주요 설문방식은 온라인에 응답하는 형태 로 www.koreanamericannationalsurvey.org 또는  www.kansurvey.org 에 접속하시면 됩니다. 설문을 완성하시는 데에는 약 15-20분정도의 시간이 소요되고 한글과 영어가 병용되었습니다. 인쇄된 설문지를 따로 원하시면 저희 사무실로 연락을 주시기 바랍니다.

설문을 완성하시는 분들에게는 경품을 얻으실 기회가 있으니 적극 권합니다! (조사에 참여하여 재미한인에대한 이해도 높이고 경품도 타고!~)
– 한국왕복항공권 2장 (1등 1명)
– 대형 스크린 TV 1대 (2등 1명)
– 애플 아이파드 1개 (3등 5명)

역사적으로 재미한인들은 이러한 조사에 협조하는 비율이 저조해 통상 정보를 중요시하는 미국정부 또는 기업들의 관심 밖에 남게 됩니다. 이번 설문조사에 응하시고 주위에 있는 여러분들에게 많이 알려주셔서 한인사회의 목소리를 높이는데 기여해 주시기 바랍니다! 감사합니다.
