Centre for Comparative Social Surveys

Centre for comparative social surveys at City University London

Established in 2003, the Centre for Comparative Social Surveys specialises in the design, implementation and analysis of cross-national survey data.

The Centre for Comparative Social Surveys is host to the European Social Survey (ESS), a multi-nation initiative designed to monitor and explain trends in attitudes, beliefs and values across countries in Europe (and its close neighbours). Since 2013 the ESS has been established as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC).

In addition to overseeing the day-to-day implementation of the ESS, staff within the Centre for Comparative Social Surveys are involved in a wide range of research projects involving the ESS.  Find out more about this research here.
