R Dataset / Package Zelig / SupremeCourt
On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the SupremeCourt data set which pertains to U.S. Supreme Court Vote Matrix. The SupremeCourt data set is found in the Zelig R package. Try to load the SupremeCourt data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("SupremeCourt"). This may load the data into a variable called SupremeCourt. If R says the SupremeCourt data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Zelig") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Zelig") followed by data("SupremeCourt"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing SupremeCourt at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the SupremeCourt R data set. The size of this file is about 865 bytes.
U.S. Supreme Court Vote Matrix
This dataframe contains a matrix votes cast by U.S. Supreme Court justices in all cases in the 2000 term.
The dataframe has contains data for justices Rehnquist, Stevens, O'Connor, Scalia, Kennedy, Souter, Thomas, Ginsburg, and Breyer for the 2000 term of the U.S. Supreme Court. It contains data from 43 non-unanimous cases. The votes are coded liberal (1) and conservative (0) using the protocol of Spaeth (2003). The unit of analysis is the case citation (ANALU=0). We are concerned with formally decided cases issued with written opinions, after full oral argument and cases decided by an equally divided vote (DECTYPE=1,5,6,7).
