Collaboration between Statistics Poland and the Institute of Social Economy in the field of social research in 1920–1939
Languages of publication
The article presents the collaboration between Statistics Poland (GUS) and the Institute of Social Economy (IGS) in the field of social research in the period of the Second Polish Republic. On the basis of historical sources and studies it was possible to determine the scope of research undertaken by both institutions in this field and the way of organisation of their joint projects, the most important of which was the household budget survey. The smooth cooperation between the IGS and Statistics Poland was possible mostly thanks to the fact that a significant part of Statistics Poland’s managerial and research teams worked for IGS. The collaboration between both institutions yielded over one hundred publications, a majority of which concerned the social situation in Poland.
