Since the mid-1990s, Lokniti has conducted election studies during all national elections and several state elections in India. Our data unit holdings constitute one of the largest archives of survey data on voter behaviour and attitudes.
Even as Lokniti's core activity revolves around elections, over the years it has also conducted a series of public opinion studies on a wide range of topics particularly those that deal with specific social issues and segments.
Using its post and pre election survey data, Lokniti-CSDS analyzed the 2018 assembly election results of Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Telangana and Chhattisgarh for Outlook magazine. Links to all the articles inside.
Lokniti in partnership with ABP News has done a series of national surveys in the last one year to gauge the political mood of voters. They serve as important instruments to understand voter sentiment between the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
Over the last four years Lokniti members have attempted to make in-depth sense of the 2014 election verdict mainly using the NES data. This has resulted in an edited book and many analytical pieces in newspapers and academic journals.
Lokniti-CSDS in collaboration with Common Cause has brought out India’s first Status of Policing in India Report. It is a combination of performance and perception about policing through an analysis of official data and an elaborate perception survey.
In 2016, Lokniti and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung came together to conduct a nationwide survey of young people aged 15 to 34 years. The study probed youth attitudes on social and political issues and their anxieties and aspirations.
