This dataverse contains survey data from the Making Electoral Democracy Work (MEDW) project. These data cover national, subnational, and supranational elections in several established democracies. The studies were typically conducted in two waves: one in the week or so before the election and one in the period immediately after the election. One of the unique features of the MEDW data is that they provide the same kind of information for different levels of government and allow for cross-level comparison and the study of cross-level interactions. The core data module is an aggregated dataset that combines information from 27 single-election surveys (including a Bavarian panel study of three elections) from five countries (Canada, France, Germany, Spain, and Switzerland). These single-election surveys are also available as individual datasets. In addition, the dataverse comprises “special datasets” (additional studies conducted in Belgium, France, Germany, Spain and Sweden) that are not included in the aggregated dataset but contain a large number of questions asked in the regular MEDW surveys. The project dataverse contains the Aggregated Dataset folder and 6 (sub) dataverses with the individual, mostly single-election, datasets: “MEDW Canada”, “MEDW France”, “MEDW Germany”, “MEDW Spain”, “MEDW Switzerland” and “MEDW Special Datasets”. All datasets are in Stata 13 format and are supplemented with codebooks, questionnaires, and technical reports.
