Description

Hello,

I am working on a project on voter behaviour, using variable "vote8" as a dependent. The variable asks for the vote choice in the last general election. Since the start of the Understanding Society waves it is included in 6 waves (2,7,8,9,10,11). However, while it makes sense that other waves would have been avoided becasue there were no elections in the meantime and therfore no new information, I am wondering why this variable is included in all waves since wave 7. As "the last election" refers to the same event in multiple waves, is the survey asking for the same information from the same people repeatedly?

Thank you in advance,
Leonard
