Event reporting

  • During fieldwork monthly reports on

    • Major national events that attract wide and long-lasting attention nationally and even in other countries

    • Elections, major issues under discussion, possible changes in the political landscape.

Guidelines f ormat l.jpg
Guidelines: format

  • Name, keywords

  • Short description

  • Assessment of scope, impact (how much attention did it get in the press, how many persons are involved)

  • Names of relevant newspapers, dates of front page news, headlines

  • If possible, when did it start and when did it end?

  • Additional information (how could this affect the fieldwork?)

  • Assign the event to one or more categories

Problems in collecting l.jpg
Problems in collecting teaching. Royal Statistical Society, London, 22 October 2003

  • Monthly reporting: ‘long’ events, recurrent events

  • What is an event: Iraq crisis?

    • Sub-events

    • National ‘Iraq’-events

      • German elections

      • Stepping down Labour cabinet members in UK

      • Aznar, Bush, Blair meeting

      • Dutch government formation

      • Polish batallion

      • Protests and rallies

  • Multiple categories

  • What if events happen in between fieldwork periods?

  • Quality newspapers or gutter press (cross-national differences)

  • Large individual differences in reporting

Use event data l.jpg
Use event data teaching. Royal Statistical Society, London, 22 October 2003

  • Avoid fishing expedition in explaining survey results:

    • Recorded before survey data available: this is what NCs considered important at the time

    • Complete European picture: get back and collect information in every country that at least some countries considered important in selecting events

  • Happy countries are all alike; every unhappy country is unhappy in its own way

    • Are countries with few events similarly quiet or are there individual differences in event reporting?

Events and attitudes l.jpg
Events and attitudes teaching. Royal Statistical Society, London, 22 October 2003

  • Relationship not obvious

    • No general pattern response process and attitudes (late respondents more cynical?)

    • No similar pattern countries over time

  • Because

    • More general attitudes than opinion poll?

    • Complicated relationship between sample composition over time and attitudes?

Adaptions round 2 l.jpg
Adaptions round 2 teaching. Royal Statistical Society, London, 22 October 2003

  • Collect and report on information on international events centrally; national impact or offspring of international events locally

  • Weekly reports instead of monthly

  • No links

  • Base reports on at least one quality newspaper and one popular newspaper

  • Future addition: ask respondents about important (inter)national events

  • Feasibility test: automated selection and coding of events, using special dictionaries

Event database l.jpg

  • Even without a direct relationship with attitudes and despite the individual differences, the event database gives a fascinating overview of what occupied Europe and the participating countries during the ESS fieldwork
