    Thanks for the clarification that you are conducting studies post-HLAB that incorporate a merits screen prior to randomization. This is an important addition to the survey process.

    As you indicate in your study, the merits screen will likely vary in complexity depending on the substantive area; for example, merits screening in asylum cases was found to be prohibitively time-consuming (and risked negative consequences for the asylum applicant).
