STUDY HIGHLIGHTS:
The ANES 2010-2012 Evaluations of Government and Society Study (EGSS) is a series of surveys that will be conducted over the Internet in 2010-2012 using samples representative of the national population of adult citizens. Each survey will have a separate sample; this is not a panel study. The chief aims of the surveys are to measure public opinion in advance of the 2012 election and to pilot-test new instrumentation. Survey questions for the EGSS mainly come from the public proposal process on the ANES Online Commons.
