PSR homepage

I have concluded, in the light of difficulties with my previous web host (JustHost) and especially with my ISP (BT), that I cannot be guaranteed the level of access to the website that allows me to keep such a diverse site properly updated and have decided to simplify the administration by moving to another web host and by narrowing the focus of the site mainly to the UK and the USA, especially the election data - which for the UK is now quite extensive, though I have retained a few of the main country-based indexes. I should like to thank everyone who has offered assistance with coverage of the many other countries around the world over the years since 1995.

The site in its previous incarnation is still available in archived form at:-
