Our Data

From Professors Barbara Palmer and Dennis Simon

Researchers and practitioners are welcomed and encouraged to use our women-friendly district data. The Excel file provided here contains the women-friendly scores as a probability for all House districts. This is a replica of the data provided on our website under “How Your District Rates.”

Because of the way we constructed the scores, they can be used for an analysis of any elections from 2002 – 2010.

We are working on improving our women-friendly index, and as updates are available, we will provide them here.

If you do download our data, please let us know. We would love to hear about your research!
