Geographic Coverage
  • Schleswig-Holstein (DE-SH)
UniverseThe population comprises all German citizens who were eligible to vote at the time the survey was conducted. Due to the fact that this is an online survey, not everybody who was eligible to vote had a probability to get selected for this Online Tracking. Therefore, the population comprises all persons with German citizenship resident in the Federal Republic of Germany who are part of the forsa omninet, who have a minimum age of 18 years, who live in Schleswig-Holstein and use the Internet at least once a week for private purposes. At the time the study was conducted, this group comprised approximately 2400 active Panel members. Active Panel members were recruited exclusively by phone, filled out a basic questionaire and attended at least one survey within the last twelve months.

Research Data Centre
  •  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.
