The Barcelona Summer School in Survey Methodology is organized by the Research and Expertise Centre for Survey Methodology (RECSM), located at the Pompeu Fabra University, in Barcelona. All courses are taught in English, by leading experts.

Target group: Professionals, Researchers and Students, who wish to develop high quality surveys and employ up-to-date statistical methods for survey data analyses. Potential attendees include survey practitioners, marketing professionals, social science students and researchers.

Objective: To provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to design surveys, implement statistical analyses and carry out quantitative research.


RECSM is a multidisciplinary research centre unified by its focus on Social Science Surveys. Surveys can be a strong tool for gaining insights into the workings of human societies and human behaviour. However, they can only live up to their potential if used adequately. RECSM research seeks to advance the quality of surveys and of survey data analysis. Our central research topics deal with improving survey questions and questionnaires, fieldwork strategies, conducting web surveys, improving causal inference with observational data and analysing survey data with advanced statistical methods. Furthermore, our research applies survey data analysis tools to substantive research topics, particularly in the fields of Political Behaviour, Social Demography and Social-Personality Psychology.

Expertise & Consulting

RECSM unites expertise in a wide array of topics related to survey development, data collection, data quality, and data analysis. We offer consulting services to researchers aiming to design their own surveys or survey experiments and analyse survey data. Find more details on our areas of expertise and our consulting projects below.

Knowledge Transfer

RECSM aims to spread knowledge and transfer skills on survey methodology and survey data analysis via a variety of channels, such as our annual summer school, regularly organized seminars and courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. We are also engaged in providing platforms for international and interdisciplinary exchange between survey researchers in our conferences.
