Surveys through 2008

Here are downloadable datasets from the first and second phases of the Comparative National Elections Project.  Researchers may use these datasets free of charge, but we ask that you fill out the user information form on the Datasets landing page before downloading them.

The [CountryName/Year].Fin files contain all of the variables included in the original survey, as well as CNEP common-core items that have been standardized to facilitate cross-national comparison and analysis. Variables with an A through L prefix and a .F suffix in these data sets are CNEP core items. Other variables may be specific to the country or to a particular election. [Note: Given the evolution of the CNEP, earlier surveys will not include questionnaire items that were added to the core over the course of the project.] The Merged data file includes only standardized CNEP common-core items.
