Linked data

The 2015 BES is working with a number of related studies of British elections – either planned or underway – to ensure that BES voter data can be linked to additional data for mutual benefits; such as candidate survey data, election leaflets, campaign spending data, agents survey data, qualitative data, etc. The 2015 BES team will also be linking data to the BES voter surveys over time on constituency and lower-level data from geographic units. All available data for distribution will be made available here.
