FAQs

Q?

How do I get data from the Wesleyan Media Project?

A.

Unfortunately, requests for data beyond information published in our press releases cannot be processed due to contractual obligations for a period of two to four years after each election cycle. Congressional data from 2010 and 2012 will be available to the academic community following the 2014 elections. At that time, we will post a request form on this site. 2012 presidential ad data will not be available until November 2016.

Q?

Where can I get data from 1996 – 2008?

A.

Academic requests for data from 1996 – 2008 should be directed to the Wisconsin Advertising Project.
