EP election results (preliminary)

We have added the results of last month’s European Parliament election. This data collection was supported by a student seminar at the University of Bremen led by Philip Manow. Many thanks to all the contributors. All entries have been initially validated. The results are preliminary but can be used for analyses. This summer, we will add the number of votes, further specify some information for new parties and conduct another validation with the primary sources.

Party Facts party linking

ParlGov provides links of party IDs to some of the main data sets with information about political parties. However, these party links in ParlGov have not been updated for some time and we have concentrated our efforts to link parties across data sets in the Party Facts project. An article introducing the project was recently published in Party Politics (Döring and Regel 2019) and archived versions of the data are available at the Party Facts Dataverse.
