Data

      PROJECT:  Estimating the Electoral Effects of Voter Turnout       Data and README file

      This file includes the data and Stata code used in our American Political Science Review article,
      "Estimating the Electoral Effects of Voter Turnout."  We greatly appreciate the interest in our work, and
      we are pleased to make this data available to you.  Please cite our APSR article when using our data.
     Thanks!


      PROJECT:  The Republicans Should Pray for Rain       Data and README file

      We have received many requests for the data used in our Journal of Politics article, "The Republicans
      Should Pray for Rain: Weather, Turnout, and Voting in U.S. Presidential Elections."  We greatly
      appreciate the interest in our data, and we are pleased to make this data available to you.  Please
      cite our JOP article when using our data.   Thanks!


      PROJECT:  Rethinking Symbolic Racism       Data and README file

      This file includes the necessary Stata code for replicating our Journal of Politics article, "Rethinking
      Symbolic Racism: Evidence of Attribution Bias."  The file does not, however, include the data from
      American National Election Study, which can be obtained here. We greatly appreciate the interest in our
      code, and we are pleased to make it available to you.  Please cite our JOP article when using our code.
      Thanks!


      PROJECT:  Erratum to “Political Sophistication and Economic Voting in the American
                         Electorate” (AJPS 2001)
       Data and README file

      In the course of replicating the analyses from our 2001 AJPS article (“Political Sophistication and
      Economic Voting in the American Electorate”) in response to a query by another scholar, we discovered a
      couple of coding errors (e.g., non-responses coded as zeroes rather than missing on some variables).
      Fixing these does not change the substantive implications of our analyses (in fact, it strengthens
      our core findings), but anyone seeking to replicate the analyses as currently described in the article will
      be unable to do so.  We apologize to the readers of AJPS.

      Because our substantive findings do not change, the Editor of AJPS (at that time, Marianne Stewart)
      asked that we simply make our updated tables and replication materials available online to
      interested parties.  We are happy to oblige her recommendation.


      Please report any errors in the data to Brad Gomez at bgomez@fsu.edu
