The Policy Agendas Project:
This is a collaborative effort by Frank Baumgartner and Bryan Jones to make a variety of systematic historical data concerning American politics and public policy available. The datasets include all congressional hearings, all laws, the entire federal budget, all stories in the CQ Almanac, a sample of stories in the New York Times, and other sources of information. The project covers the period of 1947 to present. The web site allows interactive analysis and the creation of graphs as well as downloading either subsets of the data or the entire datasets.
