Survey data

ISSP - International Social Survey Programme

TÁRKI has been involved in the International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) since 1986. As part of this research, a questionnaire (designed to take about half an hour to complete) is translated word for word. The survey was originally carried out in five or six countries, but lately more than 40 countries have participated, including European countries, the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, Israel, South Africa and some Latin American countries. 

SHARE - Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe

The Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) is a multidisciplinary and cross-national panel database of micro data on health, socio-economic status and social and family networks of more than 120,000 individuals aged 50 or older (more than 297,000 interviews). SHARE covers 27 European countries and Israel.

ESS - The European Social Survey

The ESS is a piece of international comparative research, that aims to monitor the countries of Europe in the dimensions of sociology and political science. TÁRKI, in collaboration with the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, has been responsible for the national survey in Hungary since 2002. The ESS questionnaire includes two main sections; a 'core' module which remains relatively constant from round to round, plus two or more 'rotating' modules.
