In 2005, the ESS was awarded the Descartes prize. Part of the prize money was used to develop and publish a book on nonresponse in cross-national surveys.
« Improving Survey Response : Lessons learned from the European Social Survey » by Ineke Stoop, Jaak Billiet, Achim Koch and Rory Fitzgerald from the Central Coordinating Team of the ESS has now been published by Wiley. It provides one of the first in depth examinations of survey nonresponse from a cross-national perspective.
