Socio-economic survey


We design, steer and manage retrospective and prospective socio-economic survey

There are two types of retrospective survey: retrospective surveys on the socio-economic impact of the reforms, and retrospective surveys monitoring specific programmes for professional reinsertion through the creation of self-employment and micro businesses (“what have they become?” survey). 

The common aim of these surveys is to identify the failure and success factors encountered during the professional reinsertion process of a person who has left salaried employment, in order that the return to employment processes can be adapted, based on the lessons learnt from the survey results.  

The retrospective survey on socio-economic impact is piloted across a representative sample of people who have undergone an individual process of professional reinsertion (salaried employment, self-employment, creation of a micro business etc.), having lost their job as a result of privatisation or restructuring of a state enterprise. It investigates and classifies the social, economic and financial constraints and dysfunctions encountered according to the reinsertion process, the monetary and non monetary aid that may have been received, the nature of the jobs found, and the causes of both non reinsertion and of successful professional reinsertion. 

The retrospective survey for monitoring a specific professional reinsertion programme through the creation of self-employment and micro businesses is piloted across the majority of the beneficiaries of the programme. It aims at measuring the value, the relevance and the effectiveness of the support programme for reinsertion in an independent income-generating activity, a programme that is entirely free of charge (CARIP) in which people who have lost their salaried employment have chosen to participate. In this case, the results sought are primarily those related to lessons that can be learnt in order for the content of future reinsertion programmes to be adjusted.

Prospective surveys are used to provide upstream information in the design of the various mechanisms and support systems for departures and reinsertion, in order that they match as far as possible the expectations and motivations of people affected by external redeployment plans within administrations and state enterprises.  

These surveys make use of a questionnaire that has been specifically designed to enable the analysis of projects, aspirations and wishes in relation to becoming a professional, as well as possible expectations in the face of professional reinsertion processes. Group sessions may also be used in addition to the individual response to the questionnaire.
