Workshop on “Data Collection for Social Surveys using Multiple Modes” (DCSS)
Location: Wiesbaden (Destatis)
Date: 4-5 September 2014
About the workshop
The workshop aims at presenting the final results of the ESSnet project DCSS to a broader audience and encouraging all other NSIs (ESS and overseas) to present their research on the topic as well.
The ESSnet DCSS investigated the advantages/disadvantages of using multiple data collection modes, in particular web data collection, exemplary for the Labor Force Survey. Five partners (NSIs from the Netherlands, Finland, United Kingdom, Norway and Germany) participated in the ESSnet. However, within the running time of the project, several other ESS members have also started relevant research in social surveys and discussed intensively web and mixed-mode data collection. Consequently, we also would like to encourage these NSIs to share and present their findings. Additionally, all other interested NSIs are strongly invited to join the workshop. The meeting language will be English.
