Propose Ideas for the ANES 2016 Time Series

Content for the ANES 2016 Time Series Study will primarily evolve from three sources: previous ANES Time Series questionnaires, new questions that performed well in the Pilot Study, and proposals received via the ANES Online Commons (OC) specifically for the Time Series Study.

Proposals for the inclusion of questions directly to the Time Series Study must include clear theoretical and empirical rationales. In other words, these proposals can only include questions that have been asked in previous studies and have proven their merit. All proposals must also clearly state how the questions will increase the value of the Time Series Study. In particular, proposed questions must have the potential to help scholars understand the causes and/or consequences of turnout or candidate choice.
