Step 5

Step 5: Reviewing the evidence and finalising the ESeC

Reports on each of the above validation studies in step 4 will be submitted to UESSEX-ISER. Together with WARWICK and ONS, UESSEX-ISER will evaluate these reports. In particular, they will examine the apparent effectiveness of ESeC as a Europe-wide discriminator of social position and outcomes. On this basis they will make recommendations for any changes that may be required to the ESeC prototype and its derivation. A report will be produced for discussion at a project conference. This conference will also involve Eurostat and NSIs (see Step 7). Together these activities form work package 12.
