The U.S. Supreme Court Justices Database, compiled by Lee Epstein, Thomas G. Walker, Nancy Staudt, Scott Hendrickson, and Jason Roberts is now available for public use. According to the principal investigators, “This is a multi-user, public database containing a wealth of information on individuals nominated (whether confirmed or not) to the U.S. Supreme Court. Specifically, the database houses 263 variables, falling roughly into five categories: identifiers, background characteristics and personal attributes, nomination and confirmation, service on the Court, and departures from the bench.”
The data are archived on the website of Lee Epstein at Northwestern University School of Law at http://epstein.law.northwestern.edu/research/justicesdata.html.
