State Legislator Job Duties: A Data-Driven Learning Guide (ICPSR 314)
Principal Investigator(s): Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research
Data-Driven Learning Guides are a collection of instructional exercises that can be used to enhance teaching of core concepts in the social sciences. This learning guide investigates how state legislators do their job and the constraints they face in doing their job effectively while focusing on re-election. Research questions that can be explored using this learning guide include: whether most state legislators plan to run for re-election, which political party is more responsive to constituent needs, which political party spends more time campaigning and fundraising, and whether re-election campaigning and fundraising take away from job performance.
This data collection has been deaccessioned; it is no longer distributed by ICPSR.
