Based on the results of our national survey, we developed the Calculator to help you compare your personal experience with IBM to that of other people like you.
Because all of the information collected by the Calculator is completely de-identified, we have no way of contacting study participants with project updates. If you have already registered for the Calculator and would like to receive periodic status updates, such as preliminary data analyses we conduct throughout the data collection process, please join our Registry.
Your answers to a short series of daily task performance questions are used to formulate a personalized mobility index score.
Every time you submit an updated record, your answers are saved under the "Access IBM Records" tab. At any time, here is where you can review all of your previous responses, as well as create new records. We recommend updating your records every 3 months.
Personalized Mobility Index Plot
Exploring the "Statistics" tab, you'll find a graph that shows you where your index score lies relative to those from the more than 900 participants from our 2012 - 2013 survey. The plot will also show your previous score for personal comparison.
