Dataset

Description

This dataset is a resource for scholars, researchers and students interested in qualitative electoral research, and the 2015 UK general election. It consists of transcripts, audio recordings, and associated documentation of 23 focus groups conducted across England, Scotland and Wales before and immediately after the 2015 UK General Election. The transcripts include information on each participant, including their 2015 alias, sex, age group, whether they support a particular party, and if so, at what strength, which pre-election group they participated in, whether they participated in a post-election group and the name of it, the name of their constituency and their pre-election 2015 vote preference.
The project is funded by a British Academy and Leverhulme Trust small grant and by GESIS – Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences
