Survey objectives

The ’Trajectories and Origins 2’ survey has the same objectives as the first edition conducted in 2008-2009.

It focuses on the relationship between origins, whether geographical, national or cultural, and other lines of differentiation in society: gender, social class, age, neighborhood, religion, etc. It thus aims to analyze the processes of integration, discrimination and identity construction within the population living in metropolitan France. 

The study of intergenerational changes in these processes (between immigrants, their children and grandchildren) is central in the TeO2 survey. 

One of the essential challenges of this new survey is to update the data produced in 2008-2009, with a ten-year perspective. Continuity with TeO1 therefore prevailed in the design choices of the survey, both in terms respondents sampling and questionnaire content.

Why make a TeO survey?
