Abstract: In the social sciences, research is often based on findings from survey data. Common research topics examine political behavior, societal attitudes and opinions, as well as personal values. However impactful the results might be, research and policy debates based on survey data rely on the assumption that the survey data are of high enough quality to be able to draw inferences from the data to a broader population. My dissertation covers potential errors of survey data with regard to representativeness and response quality from different perspectives.
