Seasons Power Ranking (00056)

This dataset contains elections generated from weekly power rankings. Specifically, the underlying power ranking data (kaggle.com/masseyratings/rankings) contains weekly power rankings of college basketball teams (between 2001 and 2021), college baseball teams (between 2010 and 2021), and college American football teams (between 1997 and 2021) from different media outlets and ranking systems.

For each of the three sports (basketball, baseball, American football), for each season and each ranking system, we created an election where each vote corresponds to the power ranking of the teams in one week of the season according to the ranking system.

Each patch contains the raw election and a post-processed version where some candidates and voters are deleted to make the election complete. The name of each patch starts with the sports, followed by the relevant year and ranking system.

The combined power rankings and weekly power rankings datasets were generated from the same data.

This dataset is part of a larger study by Boehmer and Schaar (see this page for a more detailed description of the dataset, the post-processing, and pointers to similar datasets). If you have any questions, please contact: niclas.boehmer@tu-berlin.de.
