Furthermore, Fafo researchers will be involved in two CASTED surveys to be conducted in 2017. A CASTED – Fafo team will work together to explore how new survey methods and techniques can be applied in China, what the specific challenges can be and what needs to be taken care of in the field to avoid significant bias.
