Welcome to the FSU CCES Team page. The CCES is a cooperative project to conduct a large scale survey of public opinion during the 2006 mid-term elections. Over 30 academic teams from major universities are involved in the effort.
The study consists of a pre-election and post-election panel survey administered over the internet by Polimetrix. Each wave of the study will contain a set of shared questions used by all teams and a set of questions controlled by each academic team. The common component question will be given to over 30,000 respondents. These questions provide a wealth of information about the background and basic political opinions of respondents. Individual team questions will be given to a subset of 1000 respondents drawn from the larger pool of 30,000+ subjects. The first phase of the survey will be conducted during October with a follow-up to all respondents given the day after the election in November.

Questions developed by the FSU team span a range of interests, including
the role of risk and uncertainty in decision making, trust in public
institutions, policy opinions on trade, immigration, foreign relations,
social security, and healthcare, and citizen responses to midterm campaign
context. The data from this project will be available at the end of
December. Check back in the spring for papers developed from these data.

frame and the research projects of individual faculty.
