  1. Poland’s Opinion and Market Research Industry

    Mazurkiewicz, Łukasz
    The market and opinion research industry in Poland emerged as a separate, organized area of business as a result of the radical economic and political transformations of 1989. During the socialist era, Poland had two survey centres (OBOP – Ośrodek Badania Opinii Publicznej, currently TNS OBOP, established in 1958, and CBOS – Centrum Badania Opinii Społecznej operating since 1982) and social research was conducted by scientific institutions and academic centres. Under this system, there was no room for market research, notably consumer research in the contemporary meaning of the term. While historians of the industry provide examples of such studies...

  2. Processing, Archiving and Dissemination of ESS Data: The Work of the Norwegian Social Science Data Services

    Kolsrud, Kirstine; Orten, Hilde; Øvrebo, Ole-Petter; Skjåk, Knut Kalgraff; Midtsæter, Hege
    Ever since the advent of the social science data archive movement, the work to reduce financial, technical, legal and administrative barriers between users and data resources has been a recurring theme, indeed a driving force behind the development of many of these institutions. Deploying a data life cycle approach, this article is an attempt to illustrate how the endeavour to reduce these barriers is tackled in the context of the biannual European Social Survey (ESS). The authors argue that the ESS’ organisational structure, in which the Central Coordinating Team constitutes the backbone, is an important factor in overcoming barriers previously...

  3. Cross-National Measures of Political Inequality of Voice

    Dubrow, Joshua Kjerulf
    Social scientists have long argued that political power is a key dimension of stratification, yet few empirically analyze political inequality or explicitly discuss the methodological implications of their measures of it. Political inequality is a distinct dimension of social stratification and a form of power inequality whose domain is all things related to political processes. It is a multidimensional concept–comprised of voice, response, and policy–that occurs in all types of governance structures. Conceptions of political inequality of voice reflect the well-established finding that position within the social and political structure impacts individual and group political influence. I argue that definitions...

  4. How to Model Parental Education Effects on Men and Women’s Attainment? Cross-National Assessments of Different Approaches

    Tomescu-Dubrow, Irina; Domański, Henryk
    Research in social stratification shares the assumption that social origin operates through assets embedded in the family structure, yet scholars’ opinions of how resources get transmitted intergenerationally vary significantly. The result of this variation in opinions is a range of measures for family background, and distinct empirical models. A simplified schema yields three main methodological approaches: (a) one parent’s characteristics models; (b) models using characteristics of both parents; and (c) models accounting for specific effects of social origin depending on gender. In this paper we analyze how models of each type perform when applied to cross-national data from the European...

  5. Mobile Phone Surveys: Empirical Findings from a Research Project

    Haeder, Sabine; Lehnhoff, Iris; Mardian, Elisabeth
    The growing number of mobile-only households across Europe and in Northern America is at present one of the key challenges for survey research. So far, frames for telephone survey sampling include only landline phone numbers. But in future landline phone surveys and mobile phone surveys will have to be combined. However, at present there are a lot of practical questions unsolved. In this paper we want to present some findings of a recent research project where we recruited individuals for an experimental mobile phone panel. Our main objective was to study their response behavior. In the first chapter we explain...
