Developing/testing performance metrics for politicians

Problem Statement

Performance metrics in sports have seen remarkable growth and development. What if we turned some of these mathematical tools on political performance? Building on last year’s M2PI project, the goal of this year’s project is to analyze data related to the activities of legislators in Canada and the USA with a view to developing engineered features which might reflect political performance. These engineered features should be granular enough to significantly inflect during the course of a parliamentary or legislative session, providing quantitative and comparative performance insight.

Skills

A background in statistics or graph theory would be helpful. Some experience with computer programming or data science may be helpful, but is not necessary.
