The ANES 2010 Panel Recontact Study is a reinterview of the ANES 2008-2009 Panel Study panelists. Those who previously completed at least one ANES wave of the Panel Study before November 2008 and who also completed the November 2008 (post-election) wave were invited to complete a follow-up interview in June 2010. Data collection ended in July 2010. The study was conducted entirely on the Internet from a sample selected and recruited by telephone. It represents United States citizens aged 18 years or older as of election day in November 2008. The questions on the recontact survey covered numerous topics. Many questions were previously asked on earlier waves of the ANES 2008-2009 Panel Study. Topics included interest in politics, cosmopolitanism, efficacy, trust in government, divided government, attitudes toward parties, personality, economic peril, race discrimination, numerous policy attitudes, and income inequality. See the questionnaire in the user guide for question wording. Demographic variables include respondent income, political party affiliation, religiosity, employment status, and household income.

Data Types: survey data
Data Collection Notes:
Value labels had their corresponding value designations deleted for readability.
Several character variables which contained an unlabeled value were labeled Blank.
The data and documentation in this collection came from the American National Election Study (ANES) Web site. The codebook was generated by ICPSR.
Produced by a collaboration between the University of Michigan and Stanford University.
Sample: All panel, from ANES 2008-2009 Panel Study
Weight: The dataset is intended to be merged with the data from the ANES 2008-2009 Panel Study. The dataset includes weights that should be used for analyses that generalize to the population. See the Methodology Report and User's Guide for instructions.
Mode of Data Collection: web-based survey
Response Rates: The estimated overall response rate (AAPOR RR3, based on observed eligibility among known cases) at the recontact stage was 16 percent.
Extent of Processing: 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:
- Created online analysis version with question text.
- Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
