Protocol Name from Source:

Study of Use of Products and Exposure-Related Behavior (SUPERB) Study, Tier 1 Adult Questionnaire

Availability:

Publicly available

Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population and found competent to administer these particular questions (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of this training. The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a “don’t know” response is provided.

Equipment Needs

Either a paper-and-pencil or computer-assisted instrument may be used. Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. A laptop computer/handheld computer is required to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements
Requirement CategoryRequired
Major equipment No
Specialized training No
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collection No
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individual Yes
Mode of Administration

Interviewer-administered questionnaire

Life Stage:

Toddler, Child, Adolescent, Adult, Senior

Participants:

Adults, aged 18 years and older; children younger than 18 years old, by parent report.

Specific Instructions:

Below each question is the original variable name from the source. Refer to the variable names for skip patterns (italics text).

The Study of Use of Products and Exposure-Related Behavior (SUPERB) personal care product questionnaire has been included as it was originally designed. However, the Expert Review Panel recommends asking every question of all participants instead of only asking one gender about nail products (Questions 28–32), foundation makeup (Questions 79–80), and mascara, fragrance, perfume, and aftershave (Questions 102–114).

While some of the questions appear to be the same (e.g., 4 and 5), the purpose for the second question is to collect the time period (i.e., day, week, month, year) to establish frequency of use.

Given the length of time it may take some subjects to answer these questions, some questions could be removed at the discretion of the researcher (e.g. those relating to frequency of purchase or size of products).

Selection Rationale

The personal care product questions from the SUPERB Study are the most comprehensive set of questions used in an exposure survey.
