  •   Comment @GZWDer: This is a good idea however the link isn't working and please add a point of time indicator as it is time relevant. Is it not possible to calculate this number based on the election result? Is it possible to make it a number instead of string to make it easier to perform queries, (i.e. one party uses negative numbers, the other positive or use positive numbers with a qualifier). What do you think? Germartin1 (talk) 10:13, 10 September 2018 (UTC)

@Germartin1: It's always an integer so the string datatype might be more appropriate than the number datatype (as with series ordinal (P1545)). Jc86035 (talk) 09:06, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
