We have a new paper in press at AMPPS with collaborators David Silverman and Rebecca Carey on best practices around recruiting and working with lower-SES participants. In this paper, we suggest that the primary considerations when working with lower-SES participants are trust and accessibility. We provide recommendations about how to build these key factors into each stage of the research process, from designing a research question to well after the data are collected and published.
