ParlGov at MPSA

We had the chance to discuss current challenges of data integration in a very nice roundtable discussion at the MPSA conference in Chicago. The roundtable ‘Coordinating Electoral and Institutional Data Assets for Data-Intensive Research: Developing a Vision for the Future’ was organised by Thomas Mustillo (Purdue University) and included members of CLEA (Ken Kollman, University of Michigan), the EJPR Yearbook (Kevin Robert Deegan-Krause, Wayne State University), PPDB Project (Susan E. Scarrow, University of Houston) and DPEG (Alexander Herzog, LSE). In addition, we had a fantastic conversation with Ryan Bakker (University of Georgia), a principal investigator for the CHES. One result of these discussions was a renewed interest to link party IDs between the various projects.
