# Announcing the 2017 Cooperative Congressional Election Study

June 21, 2017

### There is power in numbers. Starting in 2006, a consortium of 39 universities came together to create the Cooperative Congressional Election Study, the first truly large-scale academic survey project aimed at studying the midterm Congressional elections.   The study has continued every year thereafter, and continues to involve teams of researchers from across the country.   Our joint efforts have produced national sample surveys in every federal election since, including 55,000 person samples in 2010 and 2012.   Professor Stephen Ansolabehere of Harvard University coordinates the CCES and the YouGov branch in Palo Alto, CA, conducts and distributes the surveys.

We invite you to join this unique project for 2017. Read more about Announcing the 2017 Cooperative Congressional Election Study
