The Oregon Health Survey is underway! If your household is contacted, please take the time to participate and help complete this important project.
The Oregon Health Survey is an important study of Oregonians’ opinions on alcohol behaviors. The purpose of the survey is to better understand behaviors, attitudes and perceptions related to alcohol use among adults living in Oregon. The Oregon Health Authority (OHA) manages the study. Researchers have randomly chosen your household to participate.
The Oregon Health Authority directs the survey. We partner with Market Decisions Research (MDR) and a subcontractor to interview participants. The Oregon Health Authority is a state agency that oversees the Oregon Health Plan, Healthy Kids and other statewide health programs.
Your survey responses, combined with input from thousands of other people, will form a thorough and accurate view of Oregonians’ health behaviors and opinions related to alcohol.
The Oregon Health Authority is partnering with a survey research firm, Market Decisions Research (MDR), to conduct the Oregon Health Survey. MDR has done similar studies in several states and respects participants' confidentially and privacy.
OHA will use the study results to measure behaviors, attitudes, and perceptions related ot alcohol use among adults in Oregon. The information you provide will be used to help inform and improve public health education and prevention efforts for Oregon residents.
The study will reach people in more than 1,200 Oregon households from various backgrounds. We hope to reach a wide variety of people to get a balanced picture of all Oregon residents. We hope the households we contact will participate in the study.

We use a random selection of households to ensure we have information from all groups of people who live in Oregon. Your friend may be on this list, but there is no guarantee. If your friend strongly wants to participate, he or she should contact MDR.
The survey is confidential. That means your name and all other personal information are private; researchers will never link you to your answers.
OHA’s survey research partner, MDR, collects the information and then removes all identifying information before sending the data summaries to OHA. OHA researchers will not identify any survey participant before analyzing or sharing any study outcomes. OHA will not use your personal information or your answers to survey questions for any marketing or administrative purposes.
Researchers randomly selected your household from addresses in Oregon. We legally obtained all addresses.
