AUTNES: Austrian National Election Study

Logo Forschungsgruppe Autnes

The research group AUTNES (Austrian National Election Study) provides a comprehensive social science analysis of Austrian national elections and extends the database and analysis also to past elections. It analyses the demand side (voters) and the supply side (political parties) of electoral competition, the media coverage of electoral campaigns, and the dynamics these campaigns unfold. Thus, it provides a fully integrated study of electoral processes.

AUTNES was created in 2009 as part of a National Research Network funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). It is located at the Department of Government and the Department of Communication of the University of Vienna.
