The 2019 Australian Election Study is the twelfth in a series of surveys. It covers the respondent’s interest in the election campaign and politics, their past and present political affiliation, evaluation of parties and candidates, alignment with parties on various election issues, evaluation of the current economic situation, and attitudes to a range of election issues including global warming, taxation, education, unemployment, health and Medicare, refugees and asylum seekers, and population policy. Opinions on policy issues including pill testing, equal opportunities, and recognition of Indigenous Australians in the Constitution were also covered in the 2019 Australian Election Study. Background variables include level of education, employment status, occupation, type of employer, position at workplace, trade union membership, sex, age, own and parents’ country of birth, parents’ political preferences, religion, marital status, income, and where applicable, the occupation, trade union membership and political preference of the respondent’s partner. The 2019 Australian Election Study is the first in the AES series to include a panel component. It is also the first panel survey concerned with political behaviour conducted in Australia since the 1967-69 Australian National Political Attitudes Surveys.
