Survey of International Social Surveys


The Survey of International Social Surveys marks a new initiative by the International Social Science Council after its engagement started in the 1960s in the development of infrastructure services and the setting up of committees for comparative research.

The Survey of International Social Surveys provides a useful overview of 81 cross-national social surveys. It is a tool for any student and researcher from the whole spectrum of the social sciences looking for an introduction to a vast array of cross-national comparative surveys, or a rapid access to more detailed information. The precise and short overviews combined with links to specialised websites, are a good starting point and a valuable resource to complement advanced research.
