The State Policy & Politics Database (SPPD) was supported in part by an infrastructure grant and research grant awarded by the National Institute on Aging to Syracuse University. The variables in the SPPD were gathered from publicly available data. The SPPD data were collated by Erin Bisesti, Kent Jason Cheng, Douglas A. Wolf, and Jennifer Karas Montez at Syracuse University.

The State Policy & Politics Database (SPPD) is a compilation of annual data on state policies and politics that are particularly relevant for population health. The SPPD includes several categories of policies, including labor and economic policies (e.g., minimum wage levels, right to work laws), social safety net policies (e.g., earned income tax credits, SNAP), behavior-related policies (e.g., tobacco taxes, opioid prescribing), as well as the political ideology of the states’ government and citizens. Most measures are available annually from 1980 to 2021.
