GenPopWeb2 is a network of UK-based academic and non-academic partners to share knowledge and collaborate in the area of online data collection in social surveys as well as in setting the research agenda in the area. It is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
We are pleased to present three online workshops (via Zoom) on the theme of complex measures in online surveys: challenges and opportunities. Each of the events will focus on different types of complex measurement: cognition, record linkage consents and occupational coding. It will consist of invited presentations followed by extended discussion. The aim is to showcase current evidence and to discuss how we can overcome challenges in order to optimise the collection of these measures in online surveys.
