The Canadian Election Studies: Assessing Four Decades of Influence

Mebs Kanji, Antoine Bilodeau, Thomas Scotto

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Why do Canadians vote the way they do? For more than forty years, the primary objective of the ongoing Canadian Election Studies (CES) has been to investigate that question. This volume brings together principal investigators of the Studies to document the history of this impressive collection of surveys, examine what has been learned, and consider their future. The wide-ranging collection of essays provides useful background and insights on the relevance of the CES and lends perspective to the debate about where to steer the CES in the years ahead.
