Biosocial surveys are becoming increasingly popular at an international level as a new type of survey. The expression «biosocial survey» refers to research designed to gather two different types of information from individuals: biomarkers and answers to questions of more traditional survey topics, such as attitudes, opinions, lifestyle, etc. In the paper, we discuss theories and approaches that see biosocial surveys as a research strategy - from sociobiology to others more sensitive to the interplay of genetic and environmental factors. Additionally, methodological aspects are considered to compare biosocial surveys with more traditional survey designs
