Welcome to our follow-up Survey 2023!
Data collection for Survey 2023 and the Diet and Physical Activity Survey has now ended. Thank you to the tens of thousands of participants that completed these surveys online!
What is Survey 2023?
Survey 2023 is an online follow-up survey that was distributed to ATP participants from May to October 2023. The survey collected updated information on participants’ health and lifestyle practices, including cancer and long-term health conditions, cancer screening, mental health, quality of life, alcohol consumption, smoking status, body measurements, family health history, as well as the ongoing impacts of COVID-19. Questions unique to this survey included cell phone usage and a new way of providing occupational data. We estimated that it would take each participant about 30-60 minutes to complete Survey 2023.
After Survey 2023 was completed, an optional Diet and Physical Activity survey became available to complete as well, which would help answer how dietary and physical activity changes may impact health. We estimated that it would only take 20-25 minutes to complete this survey.

“Why is it important to remain a part of Alberta’s Tomorrow Project (ATP)? Because researchers are counting on us! Numerous projects depend on accessing some portion of the data ATP collects from you and I. Completing Survey 2023 is an easy choice to make – it is my direct connection to ATP’s mission of supporting analysis and investigation into ongoing health and disease prevention.”
Participants had approximately 8 weeks to complete Survey 2023 from the date they are first sent the survey invitation. There would be approximately 2 weeks to complete the optional Diet and Physical Activity survey from when it first became available.
Why is this important?
Follow-up information ensures that ATP’s vast and updated database is useful for researchers investigating cancer and chronic disease. Repeat collection of health and lifestyle information from our participants enables the assessment of health changes over time and creates scientific value for future research using this data. Survey 2023 is also timely as it helps to better understand the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on Albertans.
So far, 107 research papers have been published using ATP data. You can find detailed information about how researchers are using ATP data here (Approved Research Projects – Alberta’s Tomorrow Project (myatpresearch.ca)).
ATP research productivity by year
Requirements to complete Survey 2023 online:
- Participants needed to have a unique email address on their ATP participant file in order to be sent a Survey 2023 invitation and the specific instructions that apply to them.
- Participants would need to be able to login to the ATP Participant Portal where the survey is located
Note: Not everyone was sent the same instructions. Some participants had already connected to the ATP Participant Portal so were sent instructions to login and begin Survey 2023 right away. Other participants hadn’t connected to the ATP Participant Portal yet so were sent additional instructions to register first before being able to login and begin Survey 2023.
