Annual Survey of Social Work Programs

2018 Plans

In lieu of the traditional annual survey, CSWE will survey members in spring 2019 on the council's research initiatives. This survey, for individual and program members, will be conducted to learn more about what members need and want from CSWE’s research department. Programs will still be asked to report basic information including enrollment number that will be used to determine membership dues.

Additionally, CSWE will be conducting trend analysis of data collected by CSWE over the last 10 years. This analysis will provide an overview of multiyear data on social work education. This will help determine emerging trends and changes in the landscape of social work education over the past decade. Report on this trend analysis will be released in 2019.

The 2017 Annual Statistics on Social Work Education in the United States is now available. Past Annual Survey data can be found on the Research Briefs and Publications page.  

The Annual Survey data is used for making policy decisions and for advocacy and research. The information gathered about graduates is used in calculating program member dues for 2018. If you have any questions about the survey, feel free to e-mail the research staff.
