National Core Indicators (NCI)

Remote Survey Project


The National Core Indicators (NCI) project helps Wisconsin make things better for adults who have an intellectual or developmental disability. Vital Research is working with Wisconsin on this project. Vital Research’s trained interviewers will meet with adults “remotely” over videoconference to learn how well the services they receive meet their needs and how the services could be improved. This survey will give you the opportunity to share your opinions, feedback, and personal experiences about the services received from the state.

Key Details About NCI

Here are some things you should know about the NCI project:

  • Participation is voluntary.
  • Your choice will not impact the services you receive.
  • The interview takes 45 minutes to one hour to complete.
  • The interview will be conducted remotely over Zoom video conference.
  • You can participate using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smart phone.
  • Your responses and information will be kept private.
