Feb 2016
This report provides a summary introduction to some of the questions examined in the Brazilian Electoral Panel Study (BEPS) 2014 dataset. Following up on the 2010 Brazilian Electoral Panel Study, and taking advantage of the Brazilian 2014 presidential elections, a public opinion panel study was undertaken, comprising seven waves extending from May to November 2014. This document has two goals. The first is to familiarize those interested in using the data for their own analyses with the survey's technical approach and the dataset's subject matter. The second is to provide a preliminary dissemination of the survey's findings. These results are organized thematically around the topics covered in the questionnaire, consisting mostly of summary statistics, and the codebook provides further information on the design for the questionnaires and sample. The questionnaire also includes six controlled experiments.
