What is ANES?
|To serve the research needs of social scientists, teachers, students, policy makers and journalists, the ANES produces high quality data from its own surveys on voting, public opinion, and political participation.|
ANES data enable researchers to better understand the theoretical and empirical foundations of national election outcomes. Central to this mission is the active involvement of the ANES research community in all phases of the project. Read More...

ANES 2012 Time Series Study
|Work on the 2012 Time Series study in ongoing. We are currently in the process of performing quality checks, creating and testing weights, and preparing to append the internet data to the face-to-face data for release. We anticipate an initial data release in late May. Additional updates to the release data will be announced on our website and via twitter @electionstudies.|
The 2012 face-to-face surveys follow the model of traditional face-to-face Time-Series studies. The web-administered interviews from a second representative sample drawn separately will be appended to the traditional face-to-face. The combined file from both the in-person and internet surveys will more than double the number of cases available for analysis and will allow methodological comparisons of differences between the internet and face-to-face data collection modes.
