Technical assistance in preparing second European Quality of Life Survey

Project Management
Duration
January - November 2006

The European Quality of Life Survey is an international comparative survey project initiated by the “European Foundation for the Improvement of Working and Living Conditions”. For the survey’s second round the Foundation was looking for the assistance of experts to improve the survey’s data quality. On the one hand, it was intended to enhance the sampling procedure and the field work, and on the other hand to optimise the questionnaire.
