AbstractThis dataset contains political preferences of Austrian citizens eligible to vote at the national parliamentary election on 29.9.2013 (age 16 and older). Participants were surveyed in the period 16.8. – 7.10.2013 through an interactive online questionnaire (CAWI). Three waves were conducted before the election; a fourth wave captures opinions after the election. For the first wave, 3084 respondents were selected from a pre-existing online panel based on a quota sample. This survey emphasizes the TV debates during the election campaign and the evaluation of candidates. Further important variables are political interest; interest in the electoral campaign; party closeness; party preferences; party identification; media consumption; usage of social networks; economic situation; attitudes towards immigrants; psychological self-characterization (Big 5); coalition preferences; satisfaction with democracy; and implicit associations towards the FPÖ. Additional variables capture demographics and technical information.

  •  AUTNES - Austrian National Election Study
    The Austrian National Election Study (AUTNES) is a National Research Network, which engages in comprehensive social science analyses of the Austrian national elections. The AUTNES network is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) from 2009 to 2015 (Grant Reference: S10903-G11). One main aspect of the project is the institutionalization of an integrative study that considers the ´demand side’ (voters) and the ´supply side’ (political parties and candidates) as well as media coverage of the electoral campaign (´media side´). Relying on this approach the AUTNES makes an important contribution towards a better understanding of the functioning of democracy in Austria.
