The National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior has involved numerous researchers across waves of data collection.
For Wave 1 of the NSSHB (conducted in 2009), the initial research was developed by Drs. Debby Herbenick, Michael Reece, Brian Dodge, Stephanie Sanders, and Dennis Fortenberry. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Vanessa Schick joined the research team and co-authored all of the initial NSSHB papers appearing in the 2010 special issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine. In 2015, Dr. Tsung-chieh (Jane) Fu joined the core NSSHB team, followed shortly thereafter by Dr. Devon Hensel. Most recently, Drs. Paul Wright and Zoe Peterson have contributed to Wave 8 of the NSSHB.
