Hi Kyun,

There are a bunch of good online panels based in the US. Whether they meet your standard for cost-effectiveness, I can't say - you'll need to reach out to them and see what they can do. I have not personally used these online panels, but I have worked with or talked with researchers at both of the orgs below.

Harris Interactive is a very well-regarded research org that has a robust online panel and they may have an omnibus survey you could put some questions on if you couldn't do a whole survey. I know a number of academics who have used them.

KnowledgeNetworks does address-based sampling that they then convert to an online panel.

There are others out there too - however the others I am most familiar with focus on youth or telephone implementation and I suspect that you're probably looking for adults, given IRB concerns about research with minors.

Hi! All,

Please help me to find some good online research panel firms based in US.
I mean reliable and cost-effective by saying good (: I have been looking for
them, but my search has not been productive. If possible, I would like know
more academic-oriented firms than market research panels. Some of them
may do both. I would be grateful for your sharing of  experience and
information. You can email me at kyun4zzing at gmail.com.

Thank you for your inputs in advance.
