  • Abstract

    This dataset contains political preferences of Austrian citizens eligible to vote (age 16 and older) after the national parliamentary election on 29.9.2013. Telephone interviews (CATI) were conducted in the period 1.10. – 29.10.2013. 1000 respondents were selected based on proportionally stratified probability sampling. This survey is part of the international Comparative Study of Electoral Systems. Important variables are, among others, participation in the election and vote choice; preferences concerning raising/cutting public expenditure in certain policy areas; party closeness; party preferences and party identification; satisfaction with democracy; self- and party-placements on a left-right scale; political participation; perception of campaign ads; and political knowledge. Additional variables capture demographics, weights, and interview ratings.
