Project description
The European Social Survey (ESS) is an academically-driven comparative social survey designed to chart and explain the interaction between Europe’s changing societies and the attitudes, beliefs and behaviour pattern of its diverse populations. In addition, the ESS conducts methodological research to develope survey methods. The ESS employs extremely rigorous methodological standards in sampling, question-testing, translation and field-work procedures, and continuously develops and tests new survey methods. The ESS covers more than 30 countries and it forms a bi-annual time series starting from 2002. All data and documentation are freely available for all researchers. A multidisciplinary research community consisting of more than 135.000 users from all over the world use the ESS data. The ESS has served as a data source for thousands of journal articles, conference papers, books and other publications.
