This exciting new handbook provides a comprehensive guide to conducting survey research studies. Authored by a distinguished set of experts from across the globe, chapters cover all phases of survey projects—from conceiving, designing and planning, through sampling, measurement, and data collection, to post-fieldwork data processing, data augmentation, and quality assessment. Extensive attention to multi-national or cross-cultural survey projects is a special asset: both challenges to comparability in such studies, and current practices to achieving it in vital domains including sampling, translation, and harmonization of data over space and time, are treated in depth.

The environment for conducting surveys has changed substantially in the last several decades. New approaches to data collection and data dissemination are required, but the approaches must be adapted depending on country and culture. This Sage handbook is an up-to-date reference that covers virtually all steps in the survey life cycle. It contains methodological topics like survey modes, surveying in multicultural and cross-cultural contexts, questionnaire design and pretesting, and responsive design, along with statistical topics like sampling, weighting, analysis of complex surveys, and record linkage. Coverage of distinctive areas, like ethical issues, surveys in conflict areas, question translation, and harmonization of questions across cultures, also set this book apart from others. The handbook will be a valuable reference for survey practitioners and other professionals who need a broad overview of the many steps required to conduct high quality surveys.(Richard Valliant)
