Replication files for 'The Emergence of Party-Based Political Careers in the UK, 1801-1918'

This repository contains all necessary data and code to replicate tables and figures in 'The Emergence of Party-Based Political Careers in the UK, 1801-1918' (Cox and Nowacki, forthcoming).

To run the replication in one go, we have added a makefile that runs all scripts in the necessary order. To execute, run

make R

from the repository's root directory. The makefile also comments on what scripts are responsible for what output.

File Tree

There are three folders in the repository:

  • code contains all necessary R scripts.
  • data contains all original data.
  • output contains all data and output generated by running scripts (divided into tables, figures and modified data)

Which scripts are responsible for what?

If executed manually, R scripts should be executed in the following order. Figures / Tables in parentheses indicate respective exhibits in the manuscript.
