This methodological note examines attitude stability in a mostly self-recruited Swedish web-panel with 10 waves spanning over about 3.5 years. It is concluded that the highest stability is found for attitudes like ideological left-right position and evaluations of the government. It is also noted that items differ not only in their stability over time (r-values of correlations for the same item in different waves) but also on how much this stability changes over time, that is how much weaker the correlations get when the time difference between the waves in a correlation gets bigger.
