Errata in current version
2015-2-6The variable "v4a-d" was asked with a reversed scale in the Short-term Campaign Panel 2013 ("kpX_2860a-f"). This should be taken into account in case of merging the data.
2015-2-6Due to an error in programming participants were able to skip variable "v20a-p". They were not forced to give an answer as it was supposed to.
2015-2-6Due to a filter error 7 participants were not shown questions of sex and year/month of birth ("v16-18").
2015-2-6Due to a filter error until October 15th 206 participants of the Long-term Panel were shown a question about their former attendance to other online-surveys ("V25").
2015-2-6Due to data transformation into Stata 12 all strings ("v26s") are cut by 244 characters. For any analysis of the open comments use „ZA5758_v2-0-0_open-ended.xls“ .

2016-3-15Variable "survey" was wrong and has been corrected.2016-3-15
2016-3-15Variable "lfdn_QS13" allowing to merge the dataset to the cumulated cross-section of 2013 (ZA5702) was generated wrongly. Thus, not all participants who actually attended to both surveys were able to be merged. This has been fixed.2016-3-15
2016-3-15The coding of "v4a-d" was upside down. Instead of five intending high disapproval it was linked to high approval. This has been fixed.2016-3-15
2016-3-15One participant turned out to be no long-term panelist and have been excluded from the dataset.2016-3-15

DateSubjectDescriptionCorrection Description
2015-12-3"v0a" (sex), "v0b" (month of birth) and "v0c" (year of birth) contained answers of Short-term Campaign Panel 2013 participants which did not match with the answers given in 2013. During the survey this inconsistence answers had been recognized and the participants were asked to correct their entries. By now, the wrong answers have been replaced by the right ones (13 cases in "v0a", 21 cases in "v0b" and 37 cases in "v0c").2015-12-3

  •  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.
