This chapter offers an overview of the dataset and describes the methodological approaches adopted for the EU Kids Online project surveying 1,000 children and one of their parents in each of the 25 participating countries. Approaches and procedures are reviewed in the context of the survey research literature and methods employed in cross-national survey research. The chapter first describes the process of questionnaire design relating to content and response formats, together with the processes of testing and refining questions. Then the process of sampling and survey administration is outlined, before moving on to fieldwork procedures, research ethics, the dataset structure and a brief description of the key variables. Finally, the relations among variables associated with sampling and fieldwork procedures on the country level are considered.
