Content

AbstractThe CSES Integrated Module Dataset (IMD) brings together the existing Standalone CSES Modules (CSES Modules 1-4 inclusive, all cross-section cases and variables for select questions) into one longitudinal and harmonized dataset. This data product has been created by the CSES Secretariat. The dataset includes over 281,000 individual-level observations, 174 elections across 55-polities and allows the longitudinal exploration of electoral behavior. All data included in the CSES Integrated Module Dataset (IMD) was collected between 1996 and 2016 and is available in the Standalone CSES Modules. Variables that appear in at least three Standalone CSES Modules, up to and including the future CSES Module 5, are eligible for inclusion in IMD with all polities ever having run a CSES Module also included in the dataset. All variables in CSES IMD are harmonized allowing for longitudinal analysis. The CSES IMD offers several unique innovations to CSES users including: - Harmonization of party codes within countries across modules - Harmonization of administrative variables - Pre-coded incumbent vote choice variable - In-data labels for parties and candidates - Extensive checking of all CSES data More information regarding the CSES IMD can be found in the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES) Integrated Module Dataset (IMD) Stimulus Paper available on the CSES website. Topics: Identification, weight, and study administration variables: dataset; dataset version; election study ID (numeric polity, and alphabetic polity); respondent ID; ID components (polity CSES code, polity UN country code, and polity country name), sample component (election year, CSES module, respondent within election study); weighting factors; election type; date of election 1st and 2nd round; date questionnaire administered; interview timing: number of days between 1st and 2nd round of election; study context; mode of interview (study first, study second, and study third). Demography: Age (in years, in categories); gender; education; marital status; religious denomination; household income; rural or urban residence. MICRO-LEVEL (SURVEY) DATA: Electoral turnout: turnout decision in the main election (respondent cast a ballot at the current election); turnout decision in the current presidential election round 1 and round 2; turnout decision in the current lower house election and upper house election; vote choice for president in the first and/or second round of election; vote choice for party list in the lower house legislative election; vote choice for district candidate in the current lower house elections; vote choice for district candidate(s) in the current upper house elections; current main election: vote choice outgoing government (respondent cast a ballot for the outgoing incumbent) ; turnout decision in the previous presidential election round 1 and round 2; turnout decision in the previous lower house election and upper house election; vote choice for president in the first and/or second round of election; vote choice for party list in the lower house legislative election; vote choice for district candidate in the previous lower house elections; vote choice for district candidate(s) in the current upper house elections; party identification: closeness to one party; party the respondent feels closest to; strength of party identification; left-right self-placement; placement of different parties on a left-right scale; placement of these parties on a likeability scale; placement of the party leaders on a likeability scale; satisfaction with democracy; efficacy: it makes a difference who is in power and who people vote for; rating of the country’s state of economy over the past 12 months; state of economy better: much better or somewhat better; state of economy worse: somewhat worse or much worse. MACRO-LEVEL DATA: Party code identifier for parties/coalitions (numerical codes by polity); official voter turnout (percentage of the registered voters, and percentage of voting age population); compulsory voting; parties’ position on the left-right scale; electoral formula used in the first or lowest electoral segment of the lower house; electoral formula used to elect the president in the presidential election; freedom house rating (rating of freedom in a country at three time periods: the election year, one year before election, and two years before election); democracy-autocracy polity IV rating at three time periods: the election year, one year before election, and two years before election.

  •  Comparative Study of Electoral Systems (CSES)
    CSES is a collaborative program of research among election study teams from around the world. The research program as well as the questionnaire and the study design are developed by an international committee of leading social researchers. Participating countries include a common module of survey questions in their post-election studies. The data contain information on individual choice behavior, demographics, the constituencies, the national election results and the political systems. The studies are then merged into a single, free, public dataset for use in comparative study and cross-level analysis.
