Welcome to Sunny Spetses. Progress since Prague. Development of instruments Participation of countries Efforts at fundraising Forthcoming changes at PAU. Instruments: GGS questionnaire for wave I.
Peter McDonald (Australia) wrote on 6 May 2004: “Apologies as I shall be unable to attend this [Spetses] meeting. However, Australia’s participation from 2005 is still very much on the cards. The Australian GGP would be run as an add-on to the existing government national longitudinal panel survey, HILDA (Household, Income and Labour Dynamics Australia). HILDA already collects about 60-70 per cent of the questions in the GGP questionnaire. There will be a design difference in that HILDA interviews all adults in a household, therefore couple data would be available for Australia. Funding is unlikely to be a problem.”
