Surveycodings offers a host of social science codings measuring individual and socio-economic variables. The developed tools consist of a multilingual repository containing questionnaires, data collection tools, and coding frames based on standard statistical classifications covering a large number of countries. The variables included within the project are the following: occupation, industry, levels and fields of education, region, food groups, religions, cost of living, and marital status, all coded according to ruling standards.
The benefits of such a tool are:
1) reduced manual post-coding,
2) less harmonization logistics, and
3) decreased costs by linking survey questionnaires to databases to allow the coding of survey variables during the interview.
