For the last two decades the European Journal of Political Research has published the Political Data Yearbook as a double issue at the end of each year. In each Yearbook, respected scholars documented the political climate, electoral and referenda results for each country in a large roster (now up to 36 countries) providing a wealth of data to help readers make sense of countries and their political data.

From 2012, the Political Data Yearbook has acquired an independent page within the Wiley Online Library (the page you are currently seeing). More importantly, thanks to cooperation between the European Consortium for Political Research and Wiley-Blackwell, we are very proud to announce the creation of the Political Data Yearbook: Interactive, available online at: This completely free site allows you to access all of the data for all of the countries in one place, and work with it using intuitive graphic interfaces that allow you to track changes over any period in any country, however large or small.
