The European Survey Research Association has been established to provide coordination in the field of Survey Research in Europe. Through our activities we encourage communication between researchers. Important activities include our biannual conferences on survey research and the publication of a European journal on survey research. The ESRA was formerly named EASR.
The objective of the ESRA shall be to promot:
- the communication between survey researchers in Europe without excluding communication with survey researchers else where in the world,
- the communication between substantive researchers in the social sciences and survey methodologists in order to improve the quality of the research in both fields,
- the study of old and new survey procedures with respect to the conditions under which they can provide good quality data.
