- Alternative Resources in Media 2011 and 2013
Project Objectives: To enhance access to pluralistic and unbiased information in Armenia through traditional and alternative media, Eurasia Partnership Foundation, in cooperation with Internews Media Support NGO (Armenia) and Yerevan Press Club, implemented 2 surveys in 2011 and 2013 called "Alternative Resources in Media". The aim of the surveys was to identify media preferences of the Armenian public, their expectations from media content, their perceptions of freedom of media, censorship their trust in the media. In particular, the 2 surveys present an opportunity to: assess channels of production and dissemination of alternative content through multiple high- and low-tech platforms. gauge the consumer demand for new and information at local and regional levels, including media literacy, critical analytical skills, basic knowledge of the latest web and mobile-based media applications; measure the public advocacy by NGO's, think tanks and the international community of specific issues of concern and of independent media's development value. In 2011, CRRC-Armenia conducted a nation-wide representative survey of 1421 respondents (16 years and older). In addition to the quantitative part of the research, in-depth interviews were done among 33 media experts and 8 focus-group discussions were held among representatives of the general population. In 2013, only a nation-wide representative survey of about 1500 respondents was conducted, with no in-depth interviews or focus group.

- Armenia Corruption Surveys 2008-2010
Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC) - Armenia under the program of USAID Mobilizing Action Against Corruption (MAAC) activity conducted 4 corruption surveys in Armenia (3 household surveys and 1 enterprise survey) during the period of 2008-2010. Aimed to measure perceptions and victimization relating to corruption and the provision of public services. The intention of the surveys was to develop empirical information that can be discussed, analyzed, and used to help Government, civil society and the private sector as well as the MAAC Activity to formulate and implement policies and programs to improve governance and thereby reduce corrupt practice. Sample size was estimated to respresent the voting-age population in Armenia (18 years and older) with sample area coverage of Yerevan City and all the administrative regions (Marzes) in Armenia. The sample was designed to be representative at the level of the following three sub-strata: Yerevan, other urban areas, and rural areas, with multistage cluster sampling with preliminary stratification by urban/rural and by Marz. Following data collection, the data was weighted by age and gender to bring the realized sample in line with target population parameters in order to be nationally representative of the adult population of Armenia. The first Household survey was conducted in October 2008 among 1549 randomly selected adults from all over Armenia. The second Household survey was conducted in October 2009 with 1515 respondents. The Enterprises Survey conducted in December 2009 and January 2010 included 400 private entities from all regions. The 2010 household survey was conducted in November with 1528 respondents.

In order to increase the cross-comparison of regional social and economic dynamics, the Caucacus Research Resource Centers (CRRC) began a coordinated data collection effort in the fall of 2003 to obtain reliable, comparable data on household knowledge, attitudes and practices across the South Caucasus. The CRRC teams in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia have been collecting data in the South Caucasus on an annual basis since 2004. Although the 2004 DI survey was initially carried out only in the 3 capital cities, the 2005 DI also included one region in each country. Since 2006, the survey has been carried out nationwide, in both urban and rural areas. Requires free registration.

- Comparative Survey of Freedom, 1972-1976
Contains information gathered in 5 annual surveys that assessed the degree of freedom in 218 nations and dependencies. Was carried out under the auspices of Freedom House, New York City. The number of cases with data varies from year to year, due to annexation, amalgamation, or the addition of further territories to the roster. Data includes assessments of the political and civil rights of the general population (using a seven-point scale, i.e., 1, most freedom, to 7, least freedom), an overall freedom rating for the country (using a three-point scale, i.e, free, partly free, and not free), and the direction in which this rating appeared to be moving. Surveys after 1972 have added variables that indicate whether a change in the evaluation since the previous survey was due to internal events in the country or to new information about existing conditions. Before 1973, only the presence or absence of change is noted. Thereafter, an increase in the number of coding categories enables the direction of the change to be recorded. The 1976 data include 4 additional variables applicable to 142 cases and provide information about the system of government and the economy of most of the nations studied.

- Global Digital Activism Data Set, February 2013
Features coded cases of online digital activism from 151 countries and dependent territories. Several features from each case of digital activism were documented, including the year and month that online action commenced, the estimated age and country of origin of the initiator(s), the geographic scope of their campaign, and whether the action was online only, or also featured offline activities. Researchers were interested in the number and types of software applications that were used by digital activists. Specifically, information was collected on whether software applications were used to circumvent censorship or evade government surveillance, to transfer money or resources, to aid in co-creation by a collaborative group, or for purposes of networking, mobilization, information sharing, or technical violence (destructive/disruptive hacking). The collection illustrates the overall focus of each case of digital activism by defining the cause advanced or defended by the action, the initiator's diagnosis of the problem and its perceived origin, the identification of the targeted audience that the campaign sought to mobilize, as well as the target whose actions the initiators aimed to influence. Finally, each case of digital activism was evaluated in terms of its success or failure in achieving the initiator's objectives, and whether any other positive outcomes were apparent.

In some emergent countries, where such research conditions are not possible, there may be stated variations to this (e.g. urban areas only). Similarly, in the developed world interviews will be conducted by telephone, while in emergent and under-developed countries face to face interviews will be conducted. Demographic variables include sex, age, household income, education level, employment status, and religious preference. ICPSR has data for the USA. Data for other countries are available by request through the Norwegian Social Science Data Archive. The survey involves 43 countries across North America and Europe.

- International Military Intervention (1946-2005)
Updates International Military Intervention (IMI), 1946-1988. This newer study documents 447 intervention events from 1989 to 2005. To ensure consistency across the full 1946-2005 time span, the original coding procedures were followed. The data collection thus "documents all cases of military intervention across international boundaries by regular armed forces of independent states" in the international system). "Military interventions are defined operationally in this collection as the movement of regular troops or forces of one country inside another, in the context of some political issue or dispute". As with the original IMI (OIMI) collection, the 1989-2005 dataset includes information on actor and target states, as well as starting and ending dates. It also includes a categorical variable describing the direction of the intervention, i.e., whether it was launched in support of the target government, in opposition to the target government, or against some third party actor within the target state's borders. The intensity of the military intervention is captured in ordinal variables that document the scale of the actor's involvement, "ranging from minor engagement such as evacuation, to patrols, act of intimidation, and actual firing, shelling or bombing". Casualties that are a direct result of the military intervention are coded as well. A novel aspect of IMI is the inclusion of a series of variables designed to ascertain the motivations or issues that prompted the actor to intervene, including to take sides in a domestic dispute in the target state, to affect target state policy, to protect a socio-ethnic or minority group, to attack rebels in sanctuaries in the target state, to protect economic or resource interests, to intervene for strategic purposes, to lend humanitarian aid, to acquire territory or to dispute its ownership, and to protect its own military/diplomatic interests. The variable, civilian casualties, which complements IMI's information on the casualties suffered by actor and target military personnel has been added. OIMI variables on colonial history, previous intervention, alliance partners, alignment of the target, power size of the intervener, and power size of the target have been deleted.

- World Values Survey in Armenia (September 2011 to January 2012)
CRRC-Armenia has completed its data collection in connection with the World Values Survey (WVS) in September-October, 2011. These survey results will give researchers, social scientists and public policy makers insight into the values, beliefs and motivations of Armenians and how these factors have both changed over time and how they compare with other societies throughout the world. This standardized questionnaire, given to a representational national sample of 1,100 Armenian residents, measured the values of Armenians with respect to a number of issues. With over 250 questions covering a variety of aspects of a respondent's economic, political and social life, the WVS-Armenia project hopes to not only stimulate debate about the changes seen since the last time WVS was given in Armenia (1997), but to also give researchers and social scientists data that can be compared with other countries from around the world. The WVS has carried out representational national surveys in 97 societies containing almost 90% of the world's population.
