ANES Announcement: 2022 Pilot Study now available

Dear American National Election Studies (ANES) user community:

The ANES 2022 Pilot Study dataset and associated documentation are now available for download from the Data Center on the ANES website at this location: https://electionstudies.org/data-center/

The ANES 2022 Pilot Study is a cross-sectional survey conducted to test new questions under consideration for potential inclusion in the ANES 2024 Time Series Study and to provide data about voting and public opinion after the 2022 midterm elections in the United States.

The 30-minute questionnaire covers voter turnout and candidate choice in the 2022 midterm election, the economy, inflation, feeling thermometers, feelings about how things are going in the country, political participation, issue ownership, issue importance, trust in experts, transgender attitudes, electoral integrity, democratic attitudes, racial attitudes, and identity importance and campaign/policy issues including abortion, immigration, and guns.

Respondents for the cross-sectional survey were selected from an opt-in (non-probability) Internet panel using sample matching. The resulting dataset includes 1,585 cases, of which 1,500 are weighted and intended to represent the population of U.S. citizens aged 18 or older.

We hope that you will find this dataset useful for your work. Please send us any questions or feedback by email to: anes@electionstudies.org

Have a good day,
The ANES project
