Scottish Election Study, 2016



The Scottish Election Study (SES), 2016 was carried out by a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, University of Glasgow and University of Essex, to look at the 2016 Scottish parliament election which was held on Thursday, 5 May 2016. A pre-election survey and a post-election survey were completed by YouGov, with the same respondents interviewed in each wave. The pre-election survey was used to identify factors influencing voting intention and the post-election survey was used to identify how and why people voted the way they did. Via this panel design, researchers can determine how intentions translate into behaviour and see how expectations influence reactions to the election result.
