U.S. Political Stats allows researchers to easily visualize and analyze data and statistics about the U.S. government and political process. Users will discover a wealth of carefully selected content including election returns from 1980 to the present, congressional floor votes, Supreme Court decisions, presidential performance and economic indicators, as well as diverse demographics. This powerful tool lets users compare different types of data (for example voting records with demographic characteristics) to create datasets and visualizations that bring unique insight into the political process. Designed to be intuitive for the novice researcher, yet robust enough for senior political scientists, the platform allows users to create graphs, charts, and maps to allow for a quick analysis of data trends. Data may also be exported to allow for more in-depth manipulation and analysis.
