Wikipedia as a Data Source for Political Scientists: Accuracy and Completeness of Coverage - 0 views

  •  
    A more recent article (from 2011) reporting the results of a study showing that Wikipedia is indeed usually accurate. The author writes:

    "In this article, I review thousands of Wikipedia articles about candidates, elections, and officeholders to assess both the accuracy and the thoroughness of Wikipedia's coverage. I find that Wikipedia is almost always accurate when a relevant article exists, but errors of omissionare extremely frequent. These errors of omission follow a predictable pattern. Wikipedia's political coverage is often very good for recent or prominent topics but is lacking on older or more obscure topics."
