Professor Peter Lynn on BBC Radio 4 More or Less

Peter Lynn, Professor of Survey Methodology at ISER, was interviewed by the BBC Radio 4 programme More or Less, about the recent survey of British views on the Holocaust.

“Is it true that one in 20 adults in Britain don’t believe the Holocaust took place? Those are the findings of a survey commissioned by The Holocaust Memorial Day Trust. But Professor Peter Lynn of Essex University explains why the survey is unlikely to be accurate. “

Peter is Understanding Society’s Associate Director for Methodology and is President of the International Association of Survey Statisticians. His research interests encompass all aspects of survey methodology, with a particular focus on methods for longitudinal surveys.
