This article describes the development of an instrument for the measurement of ethnicity in cross-national comparative survey research. First, we identify the data that must to be collected on ethnicity as a core variable . We then examine the way in which the national statistics offices of the European states and the major social science surveys handle this theme. And finally we present our own instrument for the measurement of ethnicity as a background variable.
