Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This fileset includes a data-summarising spread-sheet (*.xlsx) file and an archive including the NEXUS-formatted scored Wahl-O-Mat/ Wahlkompass questionaires for the German federal elections, elections to the European parliament, and state-elections from 2017 onwards. Also included the data used to illustrate (coarse) topical differences between Swedish parties competing in the 2018 election, which entered parliament.
The NEXUS-files included in the 7z-archive (*.nex) providing the scored questionaires have been generated with and are optimised for Mesquite and PAUP*, Splits-NEXUS-files (*.dist) include the computed pairwise "political" distances and the raw neighbour-net splits graphs used as basis for the infographic in the related posts (in English or German links below; computed using the software SplitsTree
See the links below and the first sheet in the xlsx-file for further information.
When re-using the questionaires/data in a publication make sure to cite the original data sources as well, not only this figshare file set.
