Slovak coordinators of ESS Denisa Fedáková and Michal Kentoš from the Institute of social and psychological sciences SAS did report the state of preparation before the beginning of representative collection of data for 10th round of ESS in Slovakia. Global pandemic situation caused the delay in collection of data, as well applying the alternative ways how to contact the respondents. After considering all methodological options for 10th round of ESS it was concluded that except traditional in-person inquiry there will be used video chats and filling out the questionnaires by respondents (self-completion) by online or paper form. For Slovakia, the beginning the collection of data is planned for May 2021, after the state of emergency will be ended.
