Abstract
While regression and survival analysis continue to serve as workhorses when systematically studying political careers, developments in social science research methodology and the increased ease of access to new technology and data presents the opportunity to expand and enhance the study of political elites beyond the comfortable confines of existing and well-worn techniques. This panel welcomes innovative contributions to the study of political elites that employ new methods to answer old and new research questions alike. Papers that showcase big data and real-time analytics are especially welcome.
