The University of Washington Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (MS RRTC) was established October 1, 1998. Six areas were established: health promotion, coping, vocational issues, job placement, aging, and demographic research. A comprehensive survey and database were developed that included a large number of questions on all aspects of MS, with a special focus on the six priority areas. The MS Association of King County sent surveys to its members on behalf of the University of Washington MS RRTC. In addition, a variety of other contacts were made. A reminder card and two additional mailings of the survey were used to increase the response rate. Of the 1,453 surveys distributed, valid surveys were returned by 827 subjects for a 57% response rate.
