Background

Analyzing data drawn from the 2012 ANES survey of the American electorate is best done with some knowledge of basic background information on the 2012 election and with some general understanding of voting behavior in national elections. Brief discussions of both topics are provided on this website through the links below. Students who desire more knowledge of these topics than they find in these brief overviews should consult the suggested readings at the end of each section.
