Annual Survey of Social Work Programs

2016 Call for Statistics and Program Membership Dues

The 2016 Call for Statistics will be sent to all accredited social work programs by e-mail the week of November 28, 2016.

The Annual Survey of Social Work Programs (Annual Survey) data are used for making policy decisions and for advocacy and research. The information gathered about graduates is used in calculating program member dues for 2017. The Annual Survey will close February 17, 2016. If you have any questions about the Annual Survey, feel free to contact the Research Associate. Reference copies of the survey can be found at the bottom of this page.

Changes to the 2016 Annual Survey

Changes to the 2016 Annual Survey instruments were minimal. Some edits were made to the field placement categories to reflect the recommendations of the Council on Field Education. The special topic section in the faculty survey on faculty recruitment and hiring has been repeated to have a second year of data on position openings and hiring challenges. A special topic section was also included in the program sections that address policy practice education.
