Module I comprises three topics, 1. the influence of institutions on attitudes and electoral choices; 2. the nature of political and social cleavages and alignments; and 3. the evaluation of democratic institution and processes. The dataset combines individual data from post election surveys with election outcomes on district level, and national macro indicators on the election, the political system and socio-economic data.
Data are available via GESIS data catalogue. The online study catalogue ZACAT offers a simple and extended search within question texts, and a preview of the data via online analysis. It enables users to identify interesting studies or variables for their own research via scanning through the national and international data inventory.
The Final Release covers 39 election studies from 1996 till 2002.
