Parliament

Data on the Norwegian parliament, the Storting, is divided into three main areas: Biographies of the politicians, votes at the Storting, and remarks in recommendations. In addition there is a minor dataset with private proposals.

There are four archives of politicians covering different time periods. This fourfold division is due to the fact that 200 years of information, varying both in contents and quality, is rather difficult to standardize. Anyhow, The Archives of Politicians 1814-present covers the whole period, and includes at least some of the variables that are comparable.
