3.3.1 Factions summary table

3.3.2 Additional Remarks
All factions are drawn from the base data of the MPs (Stammdaten aller Abgeordneten seit 1949). Additionally, every faction that is mentioned in the protocols but was not present in the base data of the MPs is added. Since we do not only include factions that appear in the protocols, some of the faction IDs in the factions table never occur in the speeches table.
