Summary:
What challenges do researchers face when surveying immigrant populations and ethnic minorities? What are the best ways to ensure that general population surveys adequately represent minority groups?  The first book to systematically address these questions, this volume analyzes more than a dozen surveys conducted in eight Western countries on topics ranging from politics to health. These case studies-which include local and national surveys with various levels of funding-offer valuable lessons about dealing with a range of methodological challenges.
