Member Level Data Sets

There is a file in Microsoft Excel 97-2004 format (xls) for each whip count for which member-level positions could be discerned from the papers of the relevant party leader, typically the whip for the party during the two-year congress when the whip count occurred. Detailed information about the entries included in these files is provided in the codebook for the member level data.

The member-level files are organized by party and Congress.  You can access these datasets via the party-congress links provided below.  If a whip count identification number is accompanied by an asterisk, then individual-level position data were not obtainable for the count.
