The Brookings Democracy Dashboard

June 2, 2016

The Brookings Democracy Dashboard is a collection of data designed to help users evaluate political system and governmental performance in the United States. The Democracy Dashboard displays trends in democracy and governance in seven key areas: Elections administration; democratic participation and voting; public opinion; institutional functioning in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches; and media capacity. The dashboard—and accompanying analyses on the FixGov blog—provide information that can help efforts to strengthen democracy and improve governance in the U.S.

Data will be released on a rolling basis and expanded in future election years. Scroll through the interactive charts below to explore data points and trends in key areas for midterm and presidential elections and/or download the data in Excel format here »
