Comparative Surveys

GESIS examines the intercultural comparability of methods and instruments within the three areas Survey Statistics, Survey Instruments and Survey Operations. Furthermore we conduct cross-cultural and cross-national research within international research networks such as the European Social Survey, the International Social Survey Programme and its working groups on methods and questionnaire development as well as in PIAAC.

Exemplary research topics are:

  • Cross-cultural comparability of sampling designs
  • Translation and adaptation of measurement instruments
  • Testing of measurement invariance
  • Cognitive pretesting in cross-cultural surveys
