This study is part of the collection Swedish Election Studies - Parliamentary elections

Description:

This material consists of parts of the Swedish election studies for 2006 and 2010, both carried out in connection with the Swedish general elections those years. The Swedish general elections studies are a nation-wide series of interviews followed by surveys, where questions about respondents' political views and opinions as well general political interest, are asked. Many of the questions are replications of questions asked in one or several of the previous surveys, but there are also a number of questions not asked before.

The dataset includes responses and statistics for the group that was interviewed for both the 2006 and 2010 elections, and no data from the 2010-2014 panel. As such, the dataset can be viewed as effectively containing half the data from the 2006 Swedish general election and half of that from the 2010 one.
