ODISSEI Lunch Lecture: The European Social Survey (ESS)

On Thursday, 29 April from 12:00-13:00 (CEST), prof. dr. Aat Liefbroer (NIDI) and Tim Hanson (City University London) will present the European Social Survey (ESS) and the methodological and technical challenges it currently faces, both internationally and in the Netherlands.

We warmly invite you to attend this lecture, learn more about the European Social Survey, and participate in the Q&A and discussion after the lecture. Read more about the ESS and the lecture below and register via the button.

The ESS is an academically driven cross-national survey that has been conducted across Europe since its establishment in 2001. Every two years, face-to-face interviews are conducted with newly selected, cross-sectional samples. The survey measures the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour patterns of diverse populations in more than thirty nations. The ESS is part of the ODISSEI observatory and ODISSEI will provide financing of fieldwork in the Netherlands from Round 11.

In the first half of the Lunch Lecture, Tim Hanson from the ESS Headquarters at City University London will present the latest developments in the ESS and how it is addressing the challenges posed by COVID-19 and experimenting with a transition to online data collection. In the second half, the Dutch National Coordinator Aat Liefbroer (Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute) will present ESS-NL and specific challenges faced in the Netherlands as well as recent research findings from the ESS.
