README.md

A scraper for Marsad data that

  • builds networks out of constitutional and electoral law amendments
  • estimates legislator ideal points from their voting records

The repository was initially put together to build this interactive visualization of amendment cosponsorships:

The current version produces almost exactly the same data, updated to the post-2014 election assembly.

HOWTO

Replicate by running make.r in R.

TODO

  • add electoral law amendments
  • add votes and ideal points
  • support post-2014 votes
  • optimize code
  • reorganise file structure

THANKS

Thanks to Jean-Baptiste Gallopin and to the Marsad team.
