Abstract: The American national election studies (ANES) panel study, 2008-2009 is an Internet panel. Respondents were recruited using random-digit-dialing (RDD) methods common to telephone surveys. They were offered $10 per month to complete surveys on the Internet each month for 21 months from January 2008 to September 2009. Ten of the twenty one monthly surveys contains questions about politics prepared by ANES. They are designed for research on candidate choice and voter turnout in the 2008 presidential election. The other eleven waves of non-ANES survey cover topics like the respondentís health, media use, group memberships, household composition, hobbies, travel, movie watching, cell phone use, gambling, smoking, major life events, science and environment attitudes and knowledge, charitable donations, religious beliefs, interpersonal trust, employment status, and economic security. This panel study is different from the 2008 time series data in the sample and mode. Wave 22, a supplemental, free, and bonus wave is also included in this panel file. This extra wave contains questions about charitable donations, empathy, generosity, religion, authoritarianism, immigration, political knowledge, the Iraq war, preferences for government services, and other topics.
