Language Effects in Surveys (LES)

Language Effects in Surveys (LES) is an interdisciplinary project that sets out to develop and apply novel methods for studying the impact of language and culture in international survey projects.

The project explores the extent to which semantic differences across languages and cultures account for observed variations in comparative survey literature, with regards to large-scale political phenomena such as democracy, corruption and happiness. The project builds on recent developments in Natural Language Processing that enables quantification and classification of similarities and differences in conceptual structures across – as well as within – languages.
