LokDhaba: Indian Elections Dataset

TCPD-IED is a dataset of Indian election results – both Vidhan Sabha (state level) and Lok Sabha (national level) – beginning 1962.

Food for political thought

The Centre conducts real-time data collection on all ongoing and incoming General and Assembly Elections, and diffuses data-driven analysis through print and electronic media. The coverage includes the analysis, contextualization, and visualisation of results and the profiling of main parties candidates.

For each election, we assemble a team of field researchers and scholars to complete and expand existing data. Besides the ECI results data, we collect information on the socio-demographic profile of main parties’ candidates and on the sociological profile of constituencies.

LokDhaba is a freely-available repository of structured and cleaned data on Indian electoral outcomes at the national or state level from 1962 onwards.
