The National Election Studies series attempts to go beyond the mere numbers of electoral politics so as to understand the larger forces and the long-term changes taking place in democratic politics and society. The most ambitious of these has been the National Election Study, 1996 - 99, a panel study involving six waves of survey of a national representative sample of about 15,000 Indian electors across three parliamentary elections that took place in this period. This is perhaps the largest panel study of its kind in any democracy. The most recent in the National Election series has been the National Election Study 2009 and 2014.
