How are groups chosen to be included in CultureVision?

CultureVision’s expansion since 2005 has often come as a result of the changing nature of the U.S. population, the availability of culture-specific studies, and also at times as a direct result of specific requests made by clients in reaction to their patient base. Given the vast array of cultures across the globe, and the changing nature of the world, we constantly strive to regularly add and update the resource's information.
