This paper reports on the fieldwork for the survey in Morocco, Turkey, Senegal and the Ukraine. It presents an overview of the set-up of the fieldwork, sampling procedures, problems encountered and response rates.
The challenges that research teams faced varied across countries and research areas. This variation is closely related to cultural factors such as levels of social trust, family structure and rhythm of life.
The paper finishes by discussing data cleaning procedures and explaining how the survey weights were calculated.
