The Working Group of German Market and Social Research Institutes (ADM), the Working Group of Social Science Institutes (ASI) and the German Federal Statistical Office released the 6th edition of the Demographic Standards. GESIS Associate Silke Schneider participated as part of the ASI.
The Demographic Standards are used to standardize social structural survey characteristics for representative polls of the population (as household surveys and personal interviews). The aim is to achieve comparability between individual surveys. The new edition is fully revised and adjusted.
