To get access to the various data we have licensed from L2, please follow these steps:
Different folks at NYU have different access to different products from L2 Political Data. Refer to the chart chart to understand to what you have access!
|Primary status at NYU||Full raw data||VoterMapping Interface||Anonymized sample|
|Undergraduate student - completing a capstone||✅||✅||✅|
Users who apply for access will receive an account with a unique username and password via email that can be used to sign in here: https://www.l2datamapping.com/account/login.
Users who apply for and are granted access will connect to a folder that contains state-by-state files, which include two tab separated value files (.tab) for each state that can be joined together by a unique identifier. Access to the files is provisioned via mountable storage in NYU's Research Workspace (RW). In order to access the raw data file, you will need to establish a connection to the mountable storage space that has been allocated to you on Research Workspace. In order to do this, refer to the following set of instructions. For off-campus access, you must use the VPN.
These are available to anyone with an NYU login. For example, see the random sample of voters in New York State in NYU's Spatial Data Repository.
