Inventory of Concepts & Measurements: OPTED: Deliverable D8.2

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


Based on Work Package 8’s (WP8) focus on enabling the linkage of political text datasets to further their study and usefulness, this deliverable builds on the efforts of D8.1 through a focus on coded concepts and measurements. Specifically, this deliverable uses the inventory of datasets from D8.1 and its analysis of data linkages to unpack the concepts and measurements included in that inventory. It accomplishes this through the introduction and application of a framework for the categorization of coded variables on the D8.1 inventory of data sources. This deliverable both demonstrates the theoretical and practical complexity of variables coded from political text, as well as introducing additional considerations for WP8 and OPTED more broadly moving forward.
