We’ve just released the July 2014 update of our state legislative ideology data set. Both legislator-level and state-level data are included, so you can use these scores for a number of different applications.

Big changes include:

  1. Expansion of the quantity of the data by 25% at the state level, and 11% at the individual level.
  2. Expansion of the breadth of the data to include 1993-2013.
  3. Filling in holes of the coverage even before 2012.
  4. Extensive cleaning and merging operations to minimize the effect of random noise.
