ZA5322 Version 1.1.0Long-term Panel
Concept and goalThe Long-term Panel 2009-2013-2017 is a population survey in which respondents were repeatedly asked about the 2009, 2013 and 2017 federal elections. The Long-term Panel can be used to examine intra-individual changes in political attitudes and behaviour between federal elections.
Since few of the respondents of the 2009 survey still participated in the 2017 survey, no further wave was merged to this dataset for 2017. Instead, a dataset, which included all participants of the 2013 and the 2017 surveys was released.
