Political-Compass Scores

These are scores from the Political Compass online quiz, which measures political tendencies on two axes:

Economic Left (-) Right (+)
Social Libertarian (-) Authoritarian (+)

Although that site's system has received a sizable amount of criticism, it does nevertheless seem more useful than the typical left-right spectrum.

I (LP) have analyzed a large numbers of scores posted in several Internet messagebards:

I have collected the scores I've found in several spreadsheet-friendly (tab-delimited) files, which I've placed in this archive.

I've plotted density plots of their scores in these pages: The graphs of all these quizzes look like:

Political Compass

Left Right
Moral Politics (site now dead)
Moral Rules Collective
Equality Hierarchy
Moral Order
Political Brew's Political Gauge (site now dead)

For the Fire and Ice test, you must get your x and y values from the result URL; check the URL text field at the top when you get your result graph. However, the other three political quizzes will give you the numbers more directly.
