An Analysis of Global and U.S. democracy

I gave a one hour presentation at the 5th annual international symposium at Colorado State University. The topic of my talk was a global assessment of democracy with a deep dive into the U.S. case. We examined global trends in democratization and democratic backsliding as well as trends in the U.S.

There was a special focus on media, Congress, parties, voters, and states. Below is code that replicates some of the figures I generated with publicly available data.

You can check out the code on Github Gist or examine it below. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions!
