Family Dynamics and Birth Order Survey


INFORMED CONSENT
(IRB #13/02-004)

You are invited to participate in a study about siblings and birth order. We hope to learn about the experience of siblings. You were selected as a possible participant in this study because you reported that you are not the only child.


If you decide to participate, we will ask you to complete a short survey via the internet. The survey will include topics about your birth order, the responsibilities you had or didn't have growing up, and whether this helped you become the person you are today. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes.

There is minimal risk involved in participating in this study. Your participation in this study may not benefit you directly. It may be helpful in addressing questions about families and siblings.
Any information that is obtained in connection with this study and that can be identified with you will remain confidential and will be disclosed only with your permission.

Your decision whether or not to participate will not prejudice your future relation with Morgan State University. If you decide to participate, you are free to discontinue participation at any time without prejudice.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you have any additional questions later about the study, please contact Kanzas Gray Principal Investigator at 410-300-3326 or Dr. Natasha C. Pratt-Harris Faculty Advisor at 443-885-3506 who will be happy to answer them.
