Dear CSES User Community,

We are pleased to announce that the Fourth Advance Release of CSES Module 4 is now available for download from the CSES website.

Nine new election studies have been added to the file, bringing the number of election studies included so far in Module 4 to thirty-eight in total.

The studies added as of the Fourth Advance Release are: Finland (2015), Great Britain (2015), Hong Kong (2012), Kenya (2013), New Zealand (2014), Philippines (2016), Romania (2012), Slovakia (2016), and South Africa (2014).

A non-comprehensive list of changes made to previously released Module 4 data can be found on the Errata page for CSES Module 4. The Errata page for CSES Module 4 can be found by selecting the Data Center on the CSES website, navigating to the CSES Module 4 link, and then selecting the Errata link in the grey box to the right of the Module 4 download page.
