The Canadian Election Study (CES) is calling for expressions of interest in purchasing survey modules for a potential spring 2021 election. As in previous elections, the CES will be fielding a large scale online survey during the campaign period as well as a post-election survey. In the past we have offered space on the survey to the research community and will do so again this time. Given the uncertainty around election timing, we are now soliciting expressions of interest to gauge demand.

Modules can be of any length from one to five minutes for a minimum of 500 respondents up to 5000 respondents. While general population samples are easier for us to incorporate, we will consider more specialized samples on a case-by-case basis.

Prices will start at $2 for the first minute and will depend on length and complicity. Final price will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Cost will generally include the module data, data from a common core of survey items, programming, weights, and codebooks. There will be special graduate student pricing.

Expressions of interest can be submitted by completing the short form here by February 15, 2021.
