Data Archive

GESIS’ Dept. Survey Data Curation (SDC) is the official ISSP data archive. Beyond long-term data preservation, the archive team is responsible for harmonizing and integrating the national datasets. It also provides the data, its documentation and support for external users. Between 1997 and 2017 the archive team was supported in the processing of data by the Spanish ISSP partner JDS/ ASEP every second year.

GESIS’ ISSP module web pages provide search facilities and comprehensive information on modules, metadata and data access. Please direct any questions about data, documentation or archiving to the following email address:

Some useful information that can be found on the GESIS ISSP web pages:

  • Table on participating countries by module
  • List of all available ISSP data sets
  • How to cite ISSP data

Since 1985 the ISSP has been producing datasets on an annual basis. All these data can be searched on GESIS Search and directly downloaded after a simple registration procedure.
