Survey Data Harmonization Team wins 4-year NSF grant

The Survey Data Harmonization Team led by Kazimierz M. Slomczynski, Irina Tomescu-Dubrow, and Craig Jenkins received a four-year, $1.4 million award from NSF for the project, “Survey Data Recycling: New Analytic Framework, Integrated Database and Tools for Cross-National Social, Behavioral and Economic Research” (SDR) starting September 1, 2017. The award will support the development of a harmonized database derived from more than 3,000 national surveys administered over five decades to more than 3.5 million respondents from more than 150 countries. The SDR enables innovative data-intensive research on major substantive topics of social science interest and advances the fields of comparative methodology and of survey-data harmonization.
