Surveying rare populations has become more methodologically challenging in recent years because of declining response rates and the increased cost of survey research. The rising costs of surveying American Jews, who likely comprise less than 2% of the American population, exemplify the challenges researchers face when surveying such low incidence populations. One possible solution to this problem is to employ probability-based online panels as a low-cost alternative to RDD probability-based sampling of the American Jewish population. This poster demonstrates potential uses of a probability-based online panel to conduct survey research on American Jews including administering surveys to rare populations on time sensitive issues, correcting for bias in list-frames in dual-frame studies, and conducting benchmark studies on rare populations at a fraction of the cost.
