The National Center for Family & Marriage Research (NCFMR) provided an opportunity for researchers to field test new items using a large, web-based household survey (Knowledge Networks panel). Data was collected between July and October 2010. Investigators were encouraged to explore innovative measures that will help to answer new research questions on married and cohabiting relationships.
