EU-MIDIS II pre-test expert meeting at FRA

On 20-21 February, an expert meeting within the framework of the EU-MIDIS II pre-test takes place at FRA’s premises.

Eight external experts on surveying ethnic minorities and immigrant populations, cognitive testing, and international comparative surveys will take part in the expert panel. The meeting will focus on the EU-MIDIS II pre-test questionnaire, and in particular on sections related to experiences of discrimination, victimisation, and societal integration. The expert evaluations of the content of the questions, techniques for cognitive testing and other methodological issues will help to improve and finalise the pre-test questionnaire. This will be used for cognitive interviews with respondents from an ethnic minority or immigrant background in eight EU Member States, and will inform the development of the questionnaire for the EU-MIDIS II full-scale survey.
