In March, we had a ROSE workshop in Helsinki in Finland. This was the very first event in which international data from ROSE was discussed. In addition to England, the participants were ROSE partners from the Nordic-Baltic countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Sweden and Norway.
One goal of the workshop was related to the comparative perspectives of ROSE: We wished to reveal similarities and differences between the participating countries, and to discuss how these findings can be interpreted against the various cultural backgrounds. Participants from each country had prepared a presentation of how the survey was organised in the country and some findings from comparative analysis in different parts of the questionnaire.
