This dataset contains the linked panel component of AES voter surveys for 2016 and 2019. The 2019 wave of the Australian Election Study is the first in the AES series to invited respondents back to complete another wave of the survey. It is also the first panel survey concerned with political behaviour conducted in Australia since the 1967-69 Australian National Political Attitudes Surveys.

This data file includes the responses to the questions from 2016 that were repeated in 2019. To access the full 2019 AES voter survey please go to the ‘Australian Election Study, 2019’ dataset (doi:10.26193/KMAMMW).

User Notice:
Some demographic and verbatim response variables have been confidentialised. To access the restricted panel dataset please contact ADA.

There are two versions of the data files for the AES panel. One is a ‘wide’ file. In the wide file each row is a respondent with the same ID and there are separate columns for 2016 and 2019 versions of the same question. The other is a ‘long’ file. In the long file each row is a respondent-year and 2016 and 2019 questions have been merged.

08-04-2020 – The data file previously contained 154 respondents who could not be verified as the same person between the 2016 and 2019 waves. The data has been updated to remove these respondents from the data file.
