Methodology

ISSP members are constantly developing the methodology of the programme (further). The methodological work in the ISSP is coordinated by a Methodology Committee, consisting of seven members elected at the General Meeting. The Methodology Committee is chaired by Switzerland.

The Methodology Committee co-ordinates the work of six groups addressing different areas of cross-cultural methods, all concerned with issues of equivalence:

  • demography
  • non-response
  • weighting
  • mode effects
  • questionnaire design
  • translation
