  • Abstract

    This dataset contains political preferences of Austrian citizens eligible to vote at the national parliamentary election on 29.9.2013 (age 16 and older). The pre-election survey was conducted in the period 5.11.2012 – 30.6.2013 through personal interviews (CAPI); people were then re-interviewed after the election in the period 30.9. – 2.12.2013 by telephone (CATI). 3266 respondents were selected based on a proportionally stratified probability sample, and 1504 respondents were re-interviewed after the election. Important variables are, among others, political interest; the most important political issues concerning the upcoming national electoral campaign and which party is most qualified to deal with them; party closeness; party preferences; party identification; self- and party-placements on a left-right scale; evaluation of candidates; campaign perception; media consumption; political knowledge; and preferences concerning the EU and other issues such as migration and asylum, the financial crisis, the environment, or nuclear energy. Additional variables capture demographics, weights, and interview ratings.
