CSES Module 4: 2011-2016

CSES Module 4 focuses on distributional politics and social protection.

The goal of the module is to enhance knowledge of voter preferences for policies that affect income and wealth distribution, in a period of constrained growth, deficit reduction, and expenditure constraint and austerity. It draws upon the literature in comparative political economy and develops data that will enable scholars to understand how political institutions condition voters’ reactions to the politics of budgetary restraint.

The module is influenced by the economic crises of the years prior to its implementation. Also included in the module is a battery of questions about mobilization – asking respondents about contacts by parties and candidates, and about personal contacts intended to influence vote choice.
