Project: Generations and Gender Programme - A European research infrastructure on the causes and consequences of demographic development (GENDER2007)
Aart Liefbroer (project leader), Nicole Hiekel, Tineke Fokkema
The work builds on the platform of the Generations and Gender Programme (GGP) including the Generations and Gender Survey and the GGP contextual database. NIDI's substantive contribution is fourfold. Firstly NIDI develops new approaches and procedures to data harmonisation and implements the procedures on available GGS datasets. Secondly NIDI is involved in diagnosing panel attrition, including comparative research, and developing recommendations for dealing with incomplete data. Thirdly, NIDI is involved in analyses of data quality, including indicators such as incomplete data, reliability, validity and cross-national construct equivalence. Fourthly, NIDI develops new instruments to measure social support networks and plan future analytical approaches. As of 2009 NIDI is in charge of the overall coordination of GGP which, until that date had been coordinated by the Population Activities Unit of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE).
