Methodology & Practice

Longview's programme of work in this area is directed at bridging the gap between advances in the methodology of longitudinal studies and the practice of doing them. This brings together statistical work concerned with such topics as measurement error and response bias in longitudinal survey data, together with practical solutions for correcting the data and strategies for avoiding their occurence. The expert groups established involve statisticians, survey methods experts and practitioners.

In addition Longview carried out for ESRC a cross-cutting review of the Council's investment in research methods comprising the Research Methods Programme (RMP) and The National Centre For Research Methods (NCRM).
