Updated Data: Candidate Campaign Survey GLES 2017

Version 3.0.0 of the Candidate Campaign Survey (GLES 2017) (ZA6814) is available. The updated dataset contains the following changes to the previous version:

  • The erroneous variables wk_gewinner13 and wk_gewinner17 have been deleted. These two variables incorrectly indicated which party won in each constituency and not whether or not the candidate won in that constituency. A new variable wk_gewinner “Constituency winner 2017” has been generated, which indicates whether a candidate has won the constituency.
  • 12 new variables have been added to the dataset, containing first and second vote share of the candidate on the constituency, state and country level for 2013 and 2017.

Due to the high sensitivity of the data a direct download is not possible. To gain access to the data you have to sign a contract of use with GESIS. Please consider this document for further information on the procedure.
