Rcode to combine Simon Hix's roll call vote data (to be requested from him) with Simon Hug's data on roll call requesters (same for first 18 month of EP 6) (and separate vote requesters, if these votes were decided by roll call vote: if users encounter room for improvement in this data I would appreciate to be informed, thanks).
JAGS-code: party pressure
JAGS-code: party pressure as a function of rcv requester
1 Thanks are due to Simon Hix for sharing his roll call vote data and Doru Frantescu for helping me using it. The Swiss National Science Foundation (Grant-No 100012-129737) provided greatly appreciated partial financial support. The results of some early analyses on which this paper is based were presented with Brian Crisp and Matthew Gabel at the ``Open Legislative Data in Paris: A Conference of the Third Kind with Hacktivists and Academics'' at Sciences Po, Paris (July 6th and 7th, 2012). Questions and feedback from the participants at this conference as well as helpful email conversations with Simon Hix, Bjorn Hoyland and Monika Mühlböck are gratefully acknowledged.
