Danish National Election Study (DNES)

The DNES has conducted nationwide representative election surveys after every Danish parliamentary election since 1971. The aim is to document and elucidate the main reasons for voter decisions. In addition to identifying key factors that influenced individual elections, the dataset offers a unique longitudinal view on Danish democracy, political opinions and societal changes over 50 years.

Danish National Election Study

With a robust basis - a probability sample from the Danish Civil Registration System (CPR) – the data is linked to Statistics Denmark’s register data to deliver socio-demographic context on the 2,000 representative respondents.
