The British Election Study Team

The British Election Study is pleased to announce the release of the wave 9 of our Internet Panel survey together with some new findings based on these newly released data.

Wave 9 constitutes the post-referendum wave of the three wave BES EU referendum study and was conducted directly after the EU referendum. Wave 9 constitutes the post-referendum wave of the ESRC’s ‘Panel Survey Study of the 2016 EU Referendum’ project. This is a BES linked project with the [UK in a Changing Europe initiative]. The combined wave 1-9 internet panel data can be downloaded here and the wave 9 only data here.

In total 30036 respondents took wave 9 of the British Election Study. 27555 of these also took wave 8, an overall wave on wave retention rate of 82.2%. 10170 respondents took all of the first 9 waves of the survey, 33.6% of respondents who originally took wave 1. Wave 9 was conducted by YouGov between 2016-06-24 and 2016-07-04.

The 2015 British Election Study is managed via a consortium of the University of Manchester, The University of Oxford, and The University of Nottingham. The Scientific Leadership Team is comprised of Professors Ed Fieldhouse, Jane Green, Hermann Schmitt, Geoff Evans and Cees van der Eijk. The team is supported by researchers Dr Jon Mellon and Dr Chris Prosser.
