Manifesto Project Primary Documents Dataset - MPPDDS

The Manifesto Project Primary Documents Dataset aims at providing extended metadata for the primary documents that are used by the Manifesto Project Dataset (MPDS) to estimate political preferences of parties. It is based on an operationalisation done in: Merz, Nicolas, Sven Regel. 2013. What are Manifestos for? Selecting and Typing Documents in the Database. In Mapping Policy Preferences from Texts III. Statistical Solutions for Manifesto Analysts (Volkens, Andrea, Judith Bara, Ian Budge, Michael D. McDonald, Hans-Dieter Klingemann, pp. 169–194). Oxford: Oxford University Press.

This dataset is supposed to be used as an extension of the MPDS.
