Cooperate and collect data
Every year we collaborate with a number of research projects from both Sweden and abroad in our research infrastructure the Swedish citizen panel. The panel research is conducted in 3-4 waves each year, each wave containing several different studies ranging from survey experiments to cross-sectional studies. In total the panel has over 60 000 active participants, and offer our fastest and most flexible data collection.
At the SOM institute, all panel data collection is organized and operated by a sub division called Laboratory of opinion research (LORE). Since 2016 a part of the SOM institute, LORE represent a one-stop service for Swedish and international researchers in data collection and designing surveys.

Collaboration in the panel are for research projects and public organizations only. Please note that the Swedish citizen panel is a non-profit research infrastructure and the costs for collecting data are to cover the expenses of managing the panel.
