Hellenic Candidate Study 2015

The 2015 Hellenic (Greek) Candidate Study has been conducted by the Research Team of Web-based surveys - Department of Political Science, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, as part of the research project Web-based election studies of ELNES.

The survey was conducted from mid-February to end of July 2015, after the parliamentary election of Junuary 2015, as a web survey. The population of interest is the group of all candidates running with the five following parties: SYRIZA, ND, RIVER, PASOK, ANEL. The other two parties with elected MPs after the January 2015 election – the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) and Golden Dawn (GD) – have always and consistently refused to participate in the Greek Candidate survey. The 2015 Greek Candidate Study dataset includes 520 completed questionnaires and the response rate is between 35.2% and 37.6% (depending on how the cases of unknown eligibility are used in the formula).

The questionnaire has two parts: i) the CCS core questionnaire and ii) helpmevote and populism items.
