The GGP recently launched the GGP-Connect seminar series to showcase the work of the national teams and provide insights into the new round of GGS data collection. The webinars will recur on a monthly basis. Information on the coming webinars and the registration will be sent around via the monthly GGP-newsletter.
This is the first webinar of the GGP-Connect webinar series! The webinar was held on the 30th of March at 12h30. Martin Kreidl (Masaryk University) talked about the GGS Covid-Pilot survey carried out last December in Czechia.
This is the second webinar of the GGP-Connect webinar series! The webinar was held on the 26th of April at 13h00 (Amsterdam time). Aliona Cristei (UNFPA country office Moldova) and Aliona Cretu (Ministry of Health, Labour and Social Protection of the Republic of Moldova) talked about the GGS survey in Moldova. The survey is particularly interesting since about half of the data was collected before the start of the pandemic, and about half during it. In addition, Covid-19 questions were included.
This is the third webinar of the GGP-Connect series. The webinar was held on the 25th of May at 13h00 (Amsterdam time). Lars Dommermuth (Statistics Norway) and Trude Lappegard (University of Oslo) talked about the GGS data collection in Norway. A unique aspect of the data collection is that it was completed using web-only. Moreover, the survey includes specific module on uncertainty in order to study the declining fertility visible in Nordic countries. The speakers provided some insights on the survey methodology and the lessons learnt.
This is fourth webinar of the GGP-Connect seminar series. The webinar was held on the 29th of June at 13h00 (Amsterdam time). Stuart Gietel-Basten (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) and Christian Joy Pattawi Cruz (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology) talked about the GGS data collection in Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong SAR). The speakers provided insights on the survey methodology and lessons learnt from designing a GGS pilot in Asia. Preliminary results from the incentive experiments were also presented.
This is the fifth webinar of the GGP-connect seminar series. The webinar was held on the 28th of September at 14h30 (Amsterdam time). Gunnar Andersson (Stockholm University) presented the GGS data collection carried out over 2020-2021 in Sweden. The speaker provided insights on the preparation of the Swedish data collection.
The GGS was collected in Sweden to understand the rapid fertility decline that cannot be explained by conventional structural factors or other sources of data. The new round of the Swedish GGS included a shortened version of the GGS questionnaire, as well as new modules on perceived uncertainty, Covid-19 questions, and intensive parenting. A random sample of N = 30,000 people, ages 18-59, were approached. Apart from surveying the national sample, an additional immigrant sub-sample was collected among the five largest immigrant communities in the country.
This is sixth webinar of the GGP-Connect seminar series. The webinar was held on the 26th of October at 13h00.
Tiina Tambaum talked about the organisation of the pilot survey and the specificities of the Estonian GGS. She also introduced the incentive scheme that was used during the pilot survey and talked about the respective plans for the upcoming full survey. In addition, Martin Klesment presented some preliminary findings in response to the pilot survey, with a focus on the effectiveness of incentives. Some insights were also provided on how the local survey agency managed reminders to respondents and whether this may have had an effect on response rate.
