U.S. Political Stats

U.S. Political Stats is retiring July 31, 2021 and its data content may be found in Data Planet.

U.S. Political Stats is a data download and visualization tool that aids researchers in finding and understanding data on the three branches of the United States Government (Legislative, Executive, and Judicial). Designed to be intuitive for the novice researcher yet robust enough for senior political scientists, the site allows users to create graphs, charts, and maps to allow for a quick analysis of data trends. It’s the only site that contains the highly valued CQ Roll Call and CQ Press content which can be compared with other public and proprietary data.
