Newsletter on Survey Data Harmonization in the Social Sciences
About the Newsletter
Survey data harmonization and big data are innovative forces that are leading to new, emergent and interdisciplinary knowledge across the social sciences. The purposes of this newsletter are to share news and communicate with the growing community of scholars, institutions and government agencies who work on harmonizing social survey data and other projects with similar focus.
We pay special attention to the methodology of survey data harmonization. We intend for this newsletter to contribute to the development of international research and standards on methodological issues such as data comparability, data quality, proper data documentation, and data storage and access, as well as analytic procedures that can contend with the demands of harmonized data.
This newsletter is a production of Cross-national Studies: Interdisciplinary Research and Training Program, of The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN). The catalyst for the newsletter is our ongoing project, “Democratic Values and Protest Behavior: Data Harmonization, Measurement Comparability, and Multi-Level Modeling” (hereafter, Harmonization Project). It is financed by the Polish National Science Centre in the framework of the Harmonia grant competition (2012/06/M/HS6/00322).
