Latino immigrants (N=1,304) were interviewed by telephone during and/or immediately after the 2012 national elections in the US. Much of the instrumentation drew from the American National Election Study, so that immigrants could be compared to the public at large. A special issue of the journal RSF (June, 2016) features ten research pieces that analyze the 2012 LINES dataset.
