BES Wave 10 Internet Panel Data Released

The British Election Study Team

The British Election Study is pleased to announce the release of the wave 10 of our Internet Panel survey. Wave 10 was conducted in November and December 2016. The combined wave 1-10 internet panel data can be downloaded here and the wave 10 only data here.

Due to the unexpectedly early election, we have had to bring forward the release of the data and it is not quite at the stage we would normally release it. In particular we do not yet have a W1-W10 panel weight and are missing some of the profile demographic data. We are making the data available early so it is available for use in the run up to the election but users should be aware that this is not the final version of the data.

In total 30,319 respondents took wave 10 of the British Election Study. 19,380 of these also took wave 9, an overall wave on wave retention rate of 64.5%. 7,351 respondents took all of the first 10 waves of the survey, 24.3% of respondents who originally took wave 1. Wave 10 was conducted by YouGov between 24th November 2016 and 12th December 2016.

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.
