Ideal Points from Chapter 3 of Bailey and Maltzman, The Constrained Court.
This tab-delimited file contains ideal points for each Senator, Representative, President and Supreme Court Justice for each year from 1950 to 2008. The difference from the ideal point estimates from Chapter 2 is that legal factors have also been controlled for for Supreme Court Justices. Chapter 2 ideal points are more appropriate for (most) users who wish to estimate inter-institutionally comparable in which the overall policy preferences of Justices or the Court are desired. (Note: the ideal points are very highly correlated.)
