To all our EQ-i and EQ-i 2.0 users We have gone “live” with the South African data collection for the EQ-i 2.0. Our research team has been liaising with Multi-Health Systems Inc. (MHS) in setting up the system for research and we are excited to share this system with you. We need to collect data on 1500 participants, stratified according to South African demographics. We will be monitoring the process throughout to make sure that our South African normative sample is evenly distributed by gender and age, and matched to the South African Census based on race/ethnicity, geographic region and educational level. If you know of anyone who fits the criteria below, please assist us with gathering data: (See also: criteria to participate.pdf) Please participate Everyone who has their own EQ-i 2.0 portal account will have the opportunity to help us in gathering South African norms for the EQ-i 2.0 and EQ 360 instruments.

Once you log in to your portal, you will be presented with a dash board showing three tools, including one that says Data Collection South Africa. This is the tool you will use to invite participants for the research and through which you will receive your free reports.
