American National Election Study, 2004: Contextual File (ICPSR 4294)
Principal Investigator(s): University of Michigan. Center for Political Studies. American National Election Study
This study is part of the American National Election Study (ANES), a time-series collection of national surveys fielded continuously since 1952, designed to present data on Americans' social backgrounds, enduring political predispositions, social and political values, as well as their perceptions and evaluations of groups and candidates, opinions on questions of public policy, and participation in political life. The 2004 ANES auxiliary file of contextual data was created to provide a core of information for analysts interested in examining or gathering data related to the 2004 general elections in a larger framework, i.e., candidate biographical data, past elections, expenditures, House and Senate member records and ratings, and district and state descriptions. The 436 records represent all United States Congressional Districts (and, for population description, the District of Columbia) and thus may be used with both the 2004 ANES time-series study (AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 2004: TIME-SERIES STUDY [ICPSR 4245]) and the 2004 ANES panel file (AMERICAN NATIONAL ELECTION STUDY, 2004: PANEL FILE [ICPSR 4293]).
