Surveys & databases

The CBR has executed postal, online, telephone and face-to-face surveys; and created and archived a wide range of databases. These have been managed by the Survey and Database Unit whose objectives are:

  • To ensure the efficient design, management and costing of CBR project surveys including the CBR biennial survey of small and medium sized enterprises.
  • To advise on questionnaire design, survey method, choice of sampling frames, and data inputting and cleaning procedures in CBR project surveys.
  • To advise on statistical software use with CBR datasets.
  • To archive data at CBR, and where appropriate organise the deposit of ESRC sponsored datasets with the UK Data Archive.
