Notes

From the ANES website (http://www.umich.edu/~nes/studypages/2004prepost/2004prepost.htm): The study, in part, maintains and extends the core of the NES time-series by collecting data on Americans’ basic political beliefs, allegiances, and behaviors. It contains special instrumentation on American’s views on foreign policy, the war on terrorism, and the Iraq War and its consequences. It extends the experiment on the measurement of voter turnout begun in 2002, and carries expanded instrumentation on inflation, immigration, gender politics, and gay and lesbian politics. It also includes the Comparative Studies of Electoral System’s Module 2, which focuses on representation and accountability.
