Omnibus surveys are multiple-theme surveys aimed at providing quick answers to current questions of interest to policymakers and the scientific and research community. The results are available about six months after the collection of survey data.

The Omnibus survey provides a flexible tool which is intended to record and respond quickly to public administration, scientific, political and economic needs. The FSO determines the themes for the Omnibus surveys where efforts are made to establish close cooperation with the stakeholders.
