Measuring attitudes: multilevel modeling with post-stratification (MrP)


Leemann, Lucas; Wasserfallen, Fabio (2020). Measuring attitudes: multilevel modeling with post-stratification (MrP). In: Curini, Luigi; Franzese, Robert. Sage Handbook of Research Methods in Political Science and International Relations. Los Angeles: Sage Publications, 371-384.

Abstract

Multilevel regression with post-stratification, short MrP, has quickly become a standard model to measure public opinion across e.g. geographical units. This chapter shows how it outperforms other alternatives and illustrates MrP with concrete examples. Readers are walked step-by-step through the construction of a MrP model – code and data are available for replication. We also discuss and illustrate the relevance of context-level factors and how to generate uncertainty estimates of our measurements. The chapter ends with a discussion of extensions and ongoing research projects that promise to further improve MrP.
