AUTNES - Austrian National Election Study is engaged in the comprehensive social science analysis of Austrian national elections. AUTNES is part of the Vienna Center for Electoral Research (VieCER).

AUTNES was financed by the Austrian Science Fund FWF from 2009 to 2016.

The dataset "AUTNES Inter-Election Survey" contains political preferences of Austrian citizens eligible to vote (age 16 and older). This dataset is the sixth wave of the dataset and represents an inter-election survey in 2015.

Overall, the dataset includes six waves that were conducted through interactive online questionnaires (CAWI) in the period 16.8.2013 – 25.11.2015. In the first wave, 3084 respondents were selected from a pre-existing online panel based on a quota sample and then re-contacted in five consecutive waves. A key aspect is the European Election in 2014 which supplements emphasis on TV debates and candidate evaluation in the first four waves. Further variables are, among others, political preferences; media consumption; campaign perception; electoral behavior; attitudes towards the Freedom Party, Muslims, and immigration. Additional variables capture demographics and technical information.
