Course summary

For our PhD Survey Methodology, we offer supervision in quantitative survey methodology, particularly: sampling; weighting; non-response; response maximisation techniques; mode effects; data linkage; and measurement error. We especially welcome those interested in sampling and non-sampling issues using cross-sectional and longitudinal surveys, such as our British Household Panel Survey and Understanding Society. You will be supervised by some of the world’s leading experts in their field.
