This dataset contains political preferences of Austrian citizens eligible to vote (age 16 and older) before (wave 1) and after (waves 2 and 3) the national parliamentary election on 29.9.2013. Telephone interviews (CATI) were conducted in the periods 5.8. – 27.9.2013 (wave 1), 1.10. – 4.11.2013 (wave 2) and 14.8. – 20.10.2015 (wave 3). The first wave is based on a rolling-cross-section design. For wave 1, 4011 respondents were randomly sampled and re-interviewed in wave 2 (n = 2607) and wave 3 (n = 1223). Important variables are, among others, the most important political issues concerning the upcoming national electoral campaign and which party is most qualified to deal with them; party closeness and party identification; self- and party-placements on a left-right scale; a like-dislike-scale for parties and selected front-running politicians; probability of participating in the election and vote choice; contact with politicians and parties; coalition preferences; media usage and ways of seeking political information; and preferences on issues such as the financial and euro crisis, school, combating unemployment and corruption, immigration policy, and housing. Additional variables capture demographics, weights, and interview ratings
