SRA Scotland: Where now for the random probability survey?

Prices:  SRA members £25.  Non-members £45.  Students £25.

Face to face survey fieldwork is widely perceived to be in crisis. Do ever-dwindling response rates signal the end for traditional probability methods, and if so can alternatives such as quota sampling or probability panels take their place?  This SRA Scotland event explores the options available to research commissioners seeking rigorous findings, and identifies the trade-offs in terms of cost, bias, and timeliness.

SRA annual conference 2017: Social Research in a Sceptical Age

£65 to £130 for SRA members, £175 for non-members: Early bird 10% discount (to 15 September)

The climate of suspicion towards ‘experts’ has put many researchers on the defensive. Is it enough simply to assert the value of rigorous methods, or should we be checking, sharpening and improving our tools? If ‘post-truth’ carries real meaning then the pressure is on researchers to find a positive response - such as clearly communicating our findings and why they matter; and demonstrating how high standards in design, conduct and analysis are built in to our research.

Plenary speakers:

  • John Pullinger, National Statistician: Keynote speaker
  • Will Moy, Director of Full Fact
  • Suzanne Hall, Research Director, Ipsos MORI
  • Professor Tim May, Deputy Director, Sheffield Methods Institute
  • Another voice with David Walker
