This document presents the methodology and outcomes from a follow-up study of young adults on their experiences with technology-facilitated crimes. The survey was conducted on Ipsos KnowledgePanel®, the largest online panel in the United States (U.S.) that relies on probability-based sampling methods for recruitment to provide a representative sampling frame for adults in the U.S. The target population consisted of selected completions from the first wave who experienced technology-facilitated crimes. The report provides details about the survey creation, administration, and completion. It also provides details about KnowledgePanel’s background and methodology, noting that it provides probability-based samples with an organic representation of the study population for measurement of public opinion, attitudes, and behaviors. The document discusses Ipsos KnowledgePanel weighting, including study-specific post-stratification weights, with details of survey data collection and processing. The appendices present technical information and function as templates for use in similar projects.
