Methodology

Geographic Coverage
  • Germany (DE)
UniverseThe target population of the Campaign Panel comprises all German citizens who were eligible to vote in the election to the German Bundestag on September 24, 2017. Due to conducting the study online, not every German citizen eligible to vote had a chance to be selected for the survey. Thus, the frame population is restricted to German citizens eligible to vote who were members of the Online-Access-Panels conducted by Respondi AG and GapFish GmbH. The Respondi panel contained 65.000 to 70.000 members at the end of 2016. After completing a double opt-in registration procedure and filling in their master data, Respondi panel members are considered active, when they participated in a survey in the past three months, whereas GapFish panel members are considered active when they participated in a survey in the past 12 months. 113.000 members of the GapFish panel fulfill these criteria. The members of the Access-Panels are mainly recruited online. A smaller proportion is recruited by telephone.

2019-7-25Due to an error when loading the data, open question verbatims of the respondents in wave 4 were incorrectly coded to -95 "Errors in the data". The error was corrected affecting the variables kp4_840_c1, kp4_840_c2, kp4_840_c3, kp4_840_c4, kp4_840_c5, kp4_860_c1, kp4_860_c2, kp4_860_c3, kp4_860_c4, kp4_860_c5.2019-7-25
2019-7-25The numerical variable study contains as value the (ZA-)study number of the data set in four-digit format. In addition to the ZA number, the value label now also specifies the title of the respective study.2019-7-25
2019-7-25The numerical variable "sample" is used to allocates respondents to their sample or survey group. This variable is newly introduced for all GLES studies and harmonizes these information. In the election campaign panel it replaces the variable "group", which previously contained this information.2019-7-25
2019-7-25In the string variable "field_start" the date of the first day of the survey is stored in the format ´YYYYY-MM-DD´. In the string variable "field_end" the date of the last day of the survey is stored in the format ´YYYYY-MM-DD´. They replace the variable field, in which this information was previously summarized.2019-7-25
2019-7-25The variables kpX_field, year and survey have been dropped. The information can be found in the variables study and sample or in the study description.2019-7-25
2019-7-25The variable name of the constituency allocation did not contain the year of the federal election, when the constituencies were effective. This has been adjusted and the variables elecdist and elecdist1-elecdist4 renamed elecdist17_ and elecdist17_1-elecdist17_4.2019-7-25

  •  German Longitudinal Election Study (GLES)
    The German Longitudinal Election Study (GLES) is a DFG-funded project which made its debut just prior to the 2009 federal election. GLES is the largest and most ambitious election study held so far in Germany. Although the initial mandate is to examine and analyse the electorate for three consecutive elections, the aspired goal is to integrate the project within GESIS as an institutionalized election study after the federal election of 2017, and hence to make it a permanent study.
