Collection of data suitable for longitudinal comparisons requires continuous development work. Since we live in a highly dynamic world, all surveys need to be carefully scrutinised and the quality of all data must be evaluated. In addition, it is the ambition of the SOM Institute to contribute to the general development of research methods.

The SOM Institute is constantly trying to improve its work. Its current methods are always subject to improvement, and new ones are continuously tested.

Since a great deal of the collected data must be comparable over time, the questions need to be formulated similarly over the years. Yet, the surrounding society and people at large are constantly changing, implying that the SOM Institute must constantly review the survey questions and responses and non-responses in order to maximise the obtained response rates.
