Description
  • Abstract

    The Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) studies how Americans view Congress and hold their representatives accountable during elections, how they voted and their electoral experiences, and how their behavior and experiences vary with political geography and social context. This study constructed a very large sample capable of capturing variation across a wide variety of legislative constituencies. The state-level samples are sufficiently large as to measure with a reasonable degree of precision the distribution of voters' preferences within most states. The 2010 CCES involved 30 teams, yielding a Common Content sample of 55,400 cases. The Latino-Hispanic Survey was conducted concurrent to the core CCES study. The Latino-Hispanic Survey was a study of Latino/Hispanic individuals, yielding 1,150 voting-age Latinos. As part of the study, the core set of 2010 CCES Common Content questions were asked along with a battery of Latino-specific questions. Demographic information include age, income, race, and gender. The survey was administered in English and Spanish, with the respondent selecting which language they preferred to use at the start of each wave of the study.
  • Abstract

    The Cooperative Congressional Election Study (CCES) investigates how Americans view Congress and hold their representatives accountable during elections, how they voted and their electoral experiences, and how their behavior and experiences vary with political geography and social context.
  • Methods

    The survey consists of two phases in election years. In the pre-election phase, respondents answer two-thirds of the questionnaire. The pre-election phase is administered in late September to late October and rolled out in three distinct time periods, the end of September, the middle of October, and the end of October. Spacing of interviews across these intervals allows researchers to gauge the effects of campaign information and events on the state and district electorates. In the post-election phase, respondents answer the other third of the questionnaire, mostly consisting of items related to the election that just occurred. The post-election phase is administered in November.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Performed consistency checks.; Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Standardized missing values.; Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..

Sampling
The 2010 CCES survey was conducted over the Internet by YouGov/Polimetrix. The Common Content was asked of 55,400 adults interviewed in October 2010 (for pre-election data), and in November 2010 (for post-election data). The sampling method uses YouGov/Polimetrix's matched random sample methodology. In the first stage, a random sample of consumers was drawn. A list of key demographic variables was then recorded for every member of the sample. Each individual drawn is represented as a cluster of demographic characteristics, including age, income, education, race, gender, longitude and latitude. In the second stage, YouGov Polimetrix used a matching algorithm to find the Polling Point panelist who was the closest match to the person drawn off the consumer file. In this way a complete, matched random sample was constructed for all people in the sample. The 2010 CCES Latino-Hispanic Survey sampled 1,150 voting-age Latinos.
