Research-teaching project: Bavarian University Election Study 18 (BUES 18)

Universitätsstudie Bayernwahl 2018 (USBW18)

 

In 2018, three Bavarian universities (LMU Munich, Passau, Regensburg) launched the Bavarian University Election Study 18 (BUES 18). The study consists of three different survey modes: exit polls, CATI, and an online panel. The main objective of the study is to estimate voter transitions in Bavarian state and German parliamentary elections. In addition, the study seeks to understand swing motives, i.e., the reasons why Bavarian voters decide to swing their votes between the 2013 and 2018 Bavarian state elections.
