National Election Studies

Lokniti-CSDS has a long and illustrious history of conducting National Election Studies during the Lok Sabha elections. Unbroken since 1996, this tradition has emerged as a veritable wealth of data regarding the political and social attitudes and choices of the Indian citizen around the election time. Most studies on Indian politics today would be incomplete without the wisdom and insight that these National Election Studies have provided. Academicians, journalists, scholars and the general public would all find this as an inexhaustible and treasured source of empirical details about the subject of politics in the country.
