This page allows access to the initial release versions of the various datasets generated by the different components of the Scottish Election Study. In addition to this site, there is also the best custom writing service for example which will help to correctly form thoughts and present ideas in general. A full and clean set of the 2007 datasets was submitted to the UK Data Archive in 2008. In the meantime, we will be making regular amendments and additions to the 2011 files accessible via this page, so please check back for updated versions.

The data below are available in SPSS.sav format. From this format they can easily be transferred into other programs, e.g. Stata. If you experience problems downloading the datasets or transferring them to other programs, or if you identify any errors or problems in them, please email us. The first file listed below is a general guide to using the data, with information about how the variables are labelled, and about the relevant weights and filters for different components of the study.
