We encourage comments and suggestions for enhancing ANES data collections and dissemination.
We also welcome user questions.
Before contacting ANES with a question, however, please bear in mind that we are limited to
answering questions which are specifically about the conduct of ANES surveys or about the disseminated data and documentation
files which represent our surveys.

We receive many direct inquiries and make every attempt to answer in a timely manner. Response may be
delayed at certain times when studies are in progress.
ANES makes available respondent-level survey data suitable for research analysis. If you are interested in summary tables based upon data from our surveys,
we do not disseminate summary output except in the ANES Guide to Public Opinion and Electoral Behavior [the Guide summarizes all years in which specific Time Series questions have been asked, however it represents only a selection of questions].
Answers to some user questions can be found in our list of
or in other content of the ANES Help Center.
