Study description: ENES 2011 is a post-election survey, part of the CSES (3rd wave), with the fieldwork period lasting from March 7th to March 25th 2011 (additional interviews for data consistency check were carried out from 14th to 18th April 2011). The mode used was computer assisted personal interviewing. The interviews were conducted in Estonian and Russian. A total of 1000 interviews were conducted.

The sample is a stratified random sample, representative of eligible voters (18 years and older; citizens of Estonia). The interviews were conducted by using the random route method (from a randomly chosen start address at the sampling point), conducting five interviews on average per sampling point. A household in every third house or apartment was chosen and the last birthday rule was used to pick a respondent from the household. Three visits were made before replacing a household with another in case the respondent was not available. No substituting within the household was allowed.
