Socio-structural characteristics

GESIS offers information and consulting on measuring socio-structural (so-called "background") characteristics in surveys. This includes consulting related to survey instruments, coding as well as harmonisation across samples or studies, e.g. for cross-national comparisons.

In our consulting services, we focus on:

  • the measurement of education, especially in cross-national surveys,
  • the measurement of socio-cultural background.

Here, you can access our form for consulting services. With this form, you can quickly and easily request individual advice from our experts.
