    • Cross-Sectional Surveys - used to gather information on a population at a single point in time
    • Longitudinal Surveys - gathers data over a period of time to analyze changes in the population and attempt to describe and/or explain them. CATAResearch can provide three main types of longitudinal surveys:
      1. Trend Studies
        Focus on a particular population (not always of the same people), which is sampled and scrutinized repeatedly.
      2. Cohort Studies
        Focus on a particular population (from the same group but not always the same people), sampled and studied more than once.
      3. Panel Studies
        Allow a researcher to find out why changes in the population are occurring as they use the same sample of people (a panel) every time.
