Online Study Catalogue - ZACAT

ZACAT is a social science data portal allowing you to search for, browse, analyse and download social science survey data. The studies in this catalogue present a small selection of the studies available at the GESIS Data Archive for the Social Sciences - however the ZACAT holdings are extended on a regular base. Beside documentation on study level (e.g. abstract, related publications), all studies come along with documentation of full question and answer texts on variable level. Moreover, for some of the collections documentation on variable level is offered in two or more languages.
