Opposition pledges working paper

This zip file contains the data and code (Stata format) to replicate the analysis in my University of Glasgow comparative cluster paper titled “The Loser’s Mandate? Opposition Pledge Fulfilment in Comparative Perspective”. The dataset is adapted from the Comparative Party Pledge Project data used in Thomson et al. (2017), with additional information added from the Manifesto Project, ParlGov and Garritzman (2017).

Joint manifesto dataset

Download: GitHub

I have created a short script to combine the Manifesto Project and Comparative Party Pledge Project datasets. What it essentially does is aggregate the CPPP data at manifesto level and attach user-specified MARPOR variables to the relevant observations. In some cases the projects have coded different documents (e.g. summary documents vs. full manifestos) so users are advised to take care when conducting analysis.
