ANES Announcement: 2020 Pilot Study Data Available

Dear American National Election Studies (ANES) community:

The ANES 2020 Exploratory Testing Survey dataset is now available for download from the Data Center.

The purpose of the ANES 2020 Exploratory Testing Survey is to assess new questions under consideration for inclusion in the ANES 2020 Time Series Study, especially related to novel issues arising in the election year, question wording effects, and the scaling properties of lengthy question batteries.

The study consists of respondents pooled from three separate opt-in (non-probability) online panels conducted in April 2020. The resulting dataset includes 3,080 cases.

We hope that you will find this dataset useful for your work. Feel free to send us any questions or feedback by email to:

Best wishes,

The ANES project
