Research Data Centre
  •  International Social Survey Programme (ISSP)
    The International Social Survey Programme (ISSP) is a continuing annual program of cross-national survey collaboration, covering a wide range of topics important for social science research. Since 1985 the ISSP provides international data sets, enabling cross-cultural and cross-temporal research.
  • ISSP - Module Topic: Social Networks
    ‘Social Networks’ is one of the eleven ISSP topic modules. ISSP Social Networks modules essentially deal with issues, such as nature and contacts with family members and friends, participation in associations and groups, duties and rights in social networks and social trust. Since the thematic focus has changed across years and these modules only share the basic idea of measuring social networks, they are not being regarded as replicated ISSP modules.
