Workshop in International Survey Methods
The LAPOP Lab is a center for excellence in international survey research, located at Vanderbilt University. The lab’s main goals are to produce high-quality public opinion data; develop and implement cutting-edge methods; build capacity in survey research; and generate policy-relevant research.
To support advances in survey methodology, the lab hosts workshops that aim to bring together faculty, students, and other researchers to exchange ideas about topics in survey research.
Our flagship series is the Workshop on International Survey Methods (WISM). This workshop features survey experts from around the world who deliver presentations on cutting-edge methodology, with a focus on research in international contexts. The series is intentionally trans-institutional, engaging scholarship from multiple disciplines, and virtual, allowing participation from researchers across the globe.
Each workshop begins with a 30-minute presentation followed by a 30-minute Q&A. For the 2022-23 academic year, all talks will be given via Zoom on Wednesdays at 11 am CT.
