Expert survey data
The 2015 BES is collecting expert data for the first time, which can (and will) be linked to the BES voter data. These expert surveys gather information on ‘objective’ policy positions of BES voter data. The issues on which experts are asked to place the parties correspond to the issues and values which BES voter survey respondents are asked to give their own positions. The combined data can therefore be used to make party-voter comparisons.
