Nina Baur: Comparing Societies and Cultures. Challenges of Cross-Cultural Survey Research as an Approach to Spatial Analysis [Abstract]

The paper shows how cross-cultural, cross-societal, cross-national, multi-national and international comparative survey researchers have been handling space since the 1950s and how it can be used for spatial analysis. Using the concepts of the Survey Life Cycle and the Total Survey Error (TSE), the paper discusses two major methodological problems cross-cultural survey methodology faces: The problems of (1) equivalence and (2) demarcation.
