The CES has over the years included a number of tests of the impact of questionnaire design. This was particularly true of the 2011 survey. As the CES team conducts analyses on the impacts of question changes and experiments in the 2011 survey (as well as previous surveys), we will post short methodological briefs below.
This page will also include some recent working papers using CES data, some drawn from recent conference presentations, some produced just for distribution here.
