The MS in America Study was conducted over the internet in early 2014. The primary goal of the study was to establish an understanding of the current state and trends of patients affected by Multiple Sclerosis.
To qualify for the survey, participants had to be MS patients over 18 years old and a US resident or US citizen living abroad.
The survey included 156 questions on a broad range of topics. A total of 6,202 people started the survey. 5,710 met eligibility requirements, and 5,004 people completed the survey resulting in a high completion rate of 88%.
The study was solely developed and funded by Health Union, LLC which does not manufacture, sell nor market any product to diagnose, prevent or treat MS or any other disease.
