Errata in current version
DateSubjectDescription
2013-8-2l95 “preference prime minister”Due to a programming error it was not differentiated between female and male form of “prime minister” while asking the question
2013-8-2l206a-f “knowledge about positions I, North Rhine-Westphalia”Variables l206a-f “knowledge about positions I, North Rhine-Westphalia” cannot be analyzed due to a wrong question wording. It was wrongly asked for positions of political parties regarding a debt brake in Schleswig-Holstein. This is also true for variable l211a “own positions I, North Rhine-Westphalia” but all other items (l211b-e) were correctly displayed.
2013-8-2l210a-f, “knowledge about positions V, North Rhine-Westphalia”A programming error occurred during execution of variable l210a-f “knowledge about positions V, North Rhine-Westphalia”. Therefore variable cannot be analyzed.
2013-8-2l182 “former employment”Filter of variable l182 “former employment” did not consider “no answer” at variable l181 although it was supposed to do. This error affects variable l185 “former sector of employment” and l187 “former occupation”, too.

  •  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.
