Hamburg-BUS is a social science survey for Hamburg that is periodically conducted by the WiSo survey research laboratory. The main interest of the researchers is the attitude of Hamburgs' residents towards politics, integration, consumption and this year especially the party “Alternative für Deutschland”.
For the Hamburg-BUS survey, we collect data on attitude, behaviour and social structure of Hamburg’s population. On a yearly basis, about 500 to 1000 residents that are aged 16 years and older are surveyed in telephone-based interviews. This sample is created through a scientific method (Gabler-Häder-Design) that ensures the random selection of phone numbers. Due to the sample size, answers made by the respondents can be understood as representative for the overall population of Hamburg.
