24-26 October 2013, Dondena Centre for research on Social Dynamics, Milan, Italy
The DONDENA centre in Milan– in cooperation with the Consortium Board of the Generations and co.cook.mn.us Gender Programme and the Population Unit of the UNECE – is organizing the 2nd User Conference of the GGP.
This international conference aims to bring together researchers working with data from the Generations and Gender Survey and the GGP Contextual Database, and invites them to present and discuss their most recent methodological approaches and empirical findings. The conference provides a forum for exchange of ideas among existing as well as new potential GGP users, policy makers and the research community at large.
Papers will cover a wide range of substantive and methodological issues: Survey methods and implementation, Data quality and validation, Methodological considerations in studying demographic behaviour (e.g. accounting for contextual influences), Subjective wellbeing and demographic outcomes, Labour market and economic well-being, Intergenerational relationships, Grandparenthood, Retirement, Fertility of subpopulations and different social groups, Fertility intentions and www.odontiatrika.gr their realization, Division of (un)paid work, Cohabitation, Fertility, Union formation and dissolution, The organizers especially encourage the submission of papers using longitudinal data.

GGP Workshop on Mixed-Mode Data Collection
17-18 December 2012, Department of Methodology and Statistics, Faculty of Social Sciences, Utrecht University, Utrecht, the Netherlands
This GGP methodological workshop is organized to familiarize the GGP country teams and users with the lessons learnt in the GGP re-design study (2009-2012). During the period of last four years a decade of GGP experiences have been evaluated and necessary enhancements proposed in order to prepare the GGP as a sustainable research infrastructure of the decades to come. The workshop will introduce one of the major proposed innovations of the GGP in the new future – a mixed mode survey design.
When planning a survey, many decisions have to be made and one of the most important decisions concerns the choice of data collection mode. Data collection in surveys can be carried out in several modes, such as face-to-face, telephone, self-administered mail questionnaires, and web surveys. The availability of different modes of data collection leads to the methodological question: which method is best? Each method has its advantages and disadvantages; each method also makes different logistic demands. Sometimes the choice for a particular data collection is easy and condsef.org.br straightforward. But often the situation is more complex and one single method will not suffice. Therefore multiple modes of data collection or mixed modes have become more and more popular in survey practice. Recommendations for the future implementations of the GGP also call for the use of multiple modes of data collection in order to reduce the cost of data collection, while retaining the high level of data quality.
The topic of this workshop is the methodology for mixed-mode surveys. We will provide an introduction and overview of methodological issues involved in the design, implementation, and evaluation of mixed mode surveys. We will discuss advantages and disadvantages of mixed-mode survey design and review common forms of mixed-mode design, reasons for using more than one mode in a survey and the consequences of mixed-mode. The emphasis will be on data quality and on ensuring measurement equivalence in a mixed-mode design. Practical and price of viagra theoretical considerations for the design and implementation of mixed-mode surveys will be discussed, we will not focus on the ICT aspects of mixed-mode design (software, programming) nor on the statistical models for adjustment, although general principles of adjustment will be reviewed.
The objective is to provide the participants with a thorough background on mixed mode methodology and with an empirical knowledge base on the implications of mixed-mode for questionnaire design, total survey error and logistics. A text on mixed-mode design and a power-point handout will be available for all participants.
Participation is free of charge. Priority will be given to the representatives of the GGP National teams (members of the NNFP). Participants are expected to cover their own travel and accommodation costs.
1st User Conference of the GGP
23-24 May 2011, Demographic Research Institute/HCSO, Budapest, Hungary
The HCSO Demographic Research Institute in Budapest – in cooperation with the Consortium Board of the Generations and Gender Programme and the Population Unit of the UNECE – is organizing the 1st User Conference of the GGP: Demographic and Social Challenges in an Aging Europe.
The conference aims to bring together researchers working with the Generations and Gender Surveys and the GGP Contextual Databases from all across Europe, and invite them to present and discuss their most recent methodological approaches and empirical findings. The Conference provides a forum for exchange of ideas among existing as well as new, potential GGP users, policy makers and the research community at large.

Pre-PAA GGP Data Workshop
March 30, 2011, 2-4 PM, Marriott Hotel, Washington DC
Interested in cross-national demographic research? If so, the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) offers invaluable data resources, at your disposal for free!
The GGP, initiated in 2000, is a system of nationally comparative panel surveys and contextual databases which aims at improving our knowledge about demographic processes in Europe and other developed countries. Currently, wave 1 individual-level datasets are available for 11 countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Norway, Rumania, Russia). In addition, data on a Turkish-subsample of the German population is available. Later this year, wave 1 data releases for Australia, Belgium, Italy, and Lithuania are planned. In addition, the first wave 2 data sets (Bulgaria, Germany, Netherlands) are also planned to be released this year.
Next to individual-level data, a contextual database including macro-indicators on 60 developed countries can be consulted, and data can be downloaded.
In the GGP Data Workshop, information will be provided about the content of the Generations and Gender Survey and the Contextual Database. The programme of this 2-hours workshop is:
We are looking forward to meeting you in Washington DC!
Workshop on GGP Data Use
1 September 2010, 14:00 – 18:00, Hall HS 42, University of Vienna
With micro data available for international use and re-launch of the new contextual database, the GGP Consortium is organizing the Workshop on GGP Data Use as a side meeting at European Population Conference.
This workshop on GGP data use will familiarise data users with the content and treatment of data files prepared for international comparative research. Attendees will be introduced to data collection, data preparation and harmonization procedures used in the international releases of the Generations and Gender Survey data. Special attention will be give to data archiving and data dissemination activities including the access to the on-line analytical module and access to the micro-data. The workshop also places strong emphasis on feedback information received from its current users in order to ensure development of procedures that fit the needs of wide range of users.
