Measuring Democracy in India

The August issue of Seminar is now online and it is worth checking out. There’s been a longstanding debate about the utility of election surveys in India, and this special issue explores multiple aspects of election surveys, from methodology to prediction and causal inference.

The full issue can be accessed here.  Neelanjan Sircar and I have a short essay on how to improve election surveys (short answer: greater transparency + data sharing). You can read our contribution here.
