Présentation de l'opération

Organisme producteur :

Insee. Direction des statistiques démographiques et sociales (DSDS)

Type d'opération :

Survey

Objectifs :

The purpose of the Training and vocational skills survey (FQP) is to study how the awarding of diplomas has changed, to examine the effectiveness of the education system, to understand to what extent the influence of the "cultural" and "socio-economic" components of social origin on educational then professional success has evolved.

The impact of continuing training on professional careers can also be estimated in terms of mobility or salary.

Finally, the survey provides elements for understanding why unemployment amongst those with no diploma increased in the 1990s.

Thèmes abordés :

As in previous editions of the survey, the questionnaire was divided into five sections:

- professional mobility;

- initial training;

- continuing training;

- social origin;

- income from work.

Caractéristiques techniques

Unité statistique enquêtée :

People aged between 18 and 65

Périodicité de l'opération :

The FQP survey was conducted in 1964, 1970, 1977, 1985, 1993 and 2003.

In 2003, by using identical questions to those used in the previous surveys, comparisons could be made of the different topics over time.

Période et mode de collecte :

Data were collected by INSEE researchers in face-to-face interviews with the respondents and using a computer-assisted data collection method (CAPI).

Plan de sondage :

The target sample consisted of about 40,000 dwellings, taken from the INSEE master sample.

Autres spécifications :

Some dwellings identified in the field could not be surveyed: they were not regularly inhabited, the inhabitants were unable to respond (e.g. due to mental health problems), etc.

Ultimately, therefore, and taking into account people who refused to participate or who were impossible to contact, the survey included almost 40,000 people.
