ESDS User Consultation 2003
Article dated: 1 May 2003
An early task for ESDS was to undertake a user consultation exercise. Phase I of this activity was tackled by undertaking a web-based user survey. Conducted in March 2003, the survey aimed to gather feedback from current and potential users of social and economic data on the relevance of the data and support services planned by each of the four ESDS specialist data services: ESDS Government; ESDS Longitudinal; ESDS International; and ESDS Qualidata.
Stakeholders targeted were from across the social science communities and across disciplines - active researchers; higher and further education teaching staff; research students; and research support staff.
The full report, Accessing and Analysing Social and Economic Data: Users' Needs Uncovered together with the web questionnaires used for each service are now available in pdf format:
