MOSAiCH 2.0 / Call 2018

A Swiss Survey Tool for the Academic Community in Social Sciences

Starting in 2018, a new survey tool will be implemented at FORS, offering the Swiss academic community in social sciences space to implement their questions in a future-oriented, high quality survey (Click here for Call 2018).

Design

  • Pure random samples based on register data (individuals, full coverage of the resident population in Switzerland living in private households, aged 18+)
  • Yearly cross-sectional survey with at least 1 follow-up interview for the respondents
  • Self-administered questionnaires (web/paper) following procedures of latest scientific knowledge to maximise representativeness and measurement quality through invitation by letter, 3 reminders, followed by a paper questionnaire in the 3rd reminder; follow-up interview(s) through the same mode for all respondents
  • Targeted net sample size for the follow-up interviews: 1000 answers

Data

  • The collected data will all be publicly available through FORSbase and released within the year

Content

Call

  • Yearly call (in spring for data collection in the following year)
  • Topics are open, however aiming at a coherent and pleasant questionnaire for the respondents and an analytical enrichment through the data of the first survey (ISSP) for the researchers
  • Evaluation of the call will be done by a dedicated scientific commission

Scientific background

  • The FORS Foundation Board will name a Scientific Commission for MOSAiCH 2.0
  • This Scientific Commission will be formed by representatives of different Swiss universities and disciplines as well as by survey experts among the FORS staff
  • The Scientific Commission will define the strategic orientations of MOSAiCH 2.0 and evaluate the proposals
  • In collaboration with the proposing scholars, FORS will assure the methodological elaboration of the questions and the appropriate implementation in the three linguistic regions

Appel à contributions

Depuis 2012, FORS offre aux chercheuses et chercheurs en sciences sociales la possibilité de compléter la partie suisse de l’enquête MOSAiCH avec leurs propres questions, et ainsi de recueillir des données représentatives pour leurs projets de recherche.

MOSAiCH 2.0 élargit cette prestation en offrant encore plus d’espace aux chercheuses et chercheurs pour leurs propres questions et en augmentant le rythme d’appel d’offres, qui auront lieu néanmoins chaque année et non tous les deux ans comme jusqu’à présent.

Call actuel: MOSAiCH/ ISSP 2018

Nous invitons les chercheuses et chercheurs à proposer des questions pour l’enquête de suivi après le module ISSP 2018 axé sur « Religion ». Le délai de soumission est fixé au lundi 11 septembre 2017.
