Whois Accuracy Study Launches

5 June 2009

ICANN in coordination with the National Opinion Research Center at the 
University of Chicago ("NORC") has undertaken a study of domain name Whois 
contact data accuracy. Over the years, ICANN constituencies and others have 
observed apparent inaccuracies in Whois contact data provided by registrants 
when registering and maintaining domain names. This is ICANN's attempt to 
contribute to community discussion regarding Whois policy and inform ICANN 
compliance activities. ICANN and NORC anticipate issuing a preliminary report 
on the Whois Data Accuracy Study findings at ICANN 36 in Seoul, Korea. NORC's 
sample plan and proposed design methodology are available for viewing.
