Yle vaalikone data updated

I did a new scrape of the Yle vaalikone data yesterday. About 300 new candidates have answered, making it 1801 people all together.

  • The answers of all candidates in Yle vaalikone (Google Docs) (offline for now)

This time I combined it with candidate data from ehdolla.org (thank you Google Fusion Tables). Note that questions 31-33 are specific for each district and not comparable.

//EDIT: I found some errors in the previous dataset (or rather Verkostoanatomia). I did the scrape again, but skipped the fusion part. I hope this is correct now.

If you want to see how the scrape was done I’ll also leave you with the Ruby file. Don’t hesitate to comment on my coding if you have any suggestions about improvements (I am sure there are many).

//UPDATE: The dataset has been taken offline. This is why. Hope to be able to put it back soon.
