Evaluating the quality of sampling frames used in European cross-national surveys
A new deliverable from the SERISS project is available.
This report addresses the quality of the population registers which are currently being used as sampling frames in countries participating in the four cross-European surveys cooperating in SERISS: the European Social Survey (ESS), the European Values Study (EVS), the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP), and the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). It summarizes what efforts have been undertaken by register authorities to improve and update the registers and presents an inventory of the main problems encountered in the field by survey sampling experts. In addition, it discusses the quality of alternative methods of sampling and possible improvements.

SERISS is a four-year project (2016-2019) that aims to strengthen and harmonize social science research across Europe and involves the participation of five other research infra-structures (ESS-ERIC (Coord.), SHARE-ERIC, CESSDA, GGP and Wageindicator Survey).
