Description
  • Abstract

    This dataset contains information about politicians from DBpedia, a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web. Some important information about people that is available on DBpedia are name, gender, nationality, occupation, birth date, death date, profession and for many politicians also the political party they belong to. This dataset is based on the English DBpedia dump from October 2015 and documents the temporal evolution of the hyperlink network that articles about politicians formed on Wikipedia between 2001 and 2016 every month. Wikipedia maintains revisions for each article to keep track of the changes over time. The first revision of each month was used to construct the hyperlink network between articles about politicians.
