The Dutch Parliamentary Election Panel Study, 1989-1994, was conducted within the framework of the Dutch Parliamentary Election Studies. The survey was administered in three waves, one before and one after the election in 1989, and the third following the election in 1994. In the first wave, respondents provided information on their interest in politics, what they considered the most important national problem, how they intended to vote in the upcoming election, political party membership and affiliation, attitudes toward government policies and officials, opinions on political and social issues such as abortion, nuclear energy, income differences, and environmental pollution, and a variety of personal and demographic characteristics. Many first-wave items were repeated in the second and third waves. For these waves, respondents also reported the name of the party they had voted for in the election and their reasons for doing so. Other variables recorded voter perceptions of the stance of various political parties on issues such as euthanasia, nuclear weapons, and economic concerns, voter knowledge of national politicians, rating of political parties based on a 10-point left-right scale, attitudes toward politics and the effectiveness of government, union membership, and opinions on European unification. Respondents were also asked to describe how they would participate in the governing process if they thought that the Second Chamber of Parliament was about to consider a bill that the voter thought unjust and, in addition, to state which national goals should receive the highest priority.
