Abstract Der vorliegende Beitrag (zuerst 1977 erschienen) diskutiert die Organisation und Implementation von fünf 'cross-national survey projects'. Auf die folgenden Aspekte der Studien wird näher eingegangen: Sie waren multinational insofern mehr als zwei Länder einbezogen waren; alle wurden Mitte der 60er Jahre initiiert und sind inzwischen abgeschlossen; alle Studien legten einen großen Wert auf die enge Kooperation der am Projekt Beteiligten und alle Studien stützten sich auf Primärerhebungen. (pmb)

'This paper (first published in 1977) is concerned with reviewing the organization and execution of five cross-national survey research projects. The projects had in common the following obvious characteristics: all were cross-national in the sense that the component surveys have been carried out in more than one country; all had a multinational character in the sense that more than two countries were involved; all were initiated around the mid-sixties and have been more or less completed; in all of them a considerable effort has been made to achieve the participation of all project members in all stages of the work; all projects are based on the primary analysis of data specifically collected for purposes of the given project.'
