Research projects within the Department

Two new Department of Methodology research projects, both funded by the NCRM Methodological Innovations Project| scheme:

Communicating Chronic Pain: Interdisciplinary Methods for Non-Textual Data  |

The research adapts interdisciplinary methods from the arts, humanities and social sciences to examine how chronic pain, as a non-verbal experience, can be communicated through non-textual data, and how it circulates socially.

 

Item nonresponse and measurement error in cross-national surveys: Methods of data collection and analysis|

The complexity of cross-national surveys raises methodological challenges which need to be met in order to make the best use of the data. Two of these are problems of data quality: measurement error where the answers by survey respondents are in some way erroneous; and nonresponse where some questions are not answered at all. The goal of this project is to develop and evaluate research methods for these problems.
