Welcome to the Workshop Website

“Health Issues in Public Opinion Survey Research in Central and Eastern Europe” is four-day workshop (March 31 – April 3, 2011) that takes a social science perspective to the analysis of health issues in Central and Eastern Europe (CEE).  We will compare the state of affairs in CEE prior to 1989 to the post-communist era, as well as current differences within the region, and between CEE and Western Europe. In practical terms, the workshop is devoted to analyzing objective and subjective indicators of health relying on national and cross-national surveys. We focus on the relationship between social background—including gender, age, education, socio-economic position—and health.

Kazimierz M. Slomczynski, Professor at the Sociology and Political Science Departments at OSU, and two specialists from CEE, Dr. Irina Tomescu-Dubrow and Dr. Joshua K. Dubrow from CONSIRT, will provide the training and will assist students with their research questions during the workshop. Upon completion of the workshop, students will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Workshop is organized by The Center for Slavic and East European Studies (CSEES), the Ohio State University, and Cross-National Studies: Interdisciplinary Research and Training Program (CONSIRT), OSU-Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN).
