Questions:

The data indicates the number of questions posed by each member during question hour. This takes into account starred, un-starred and short notice questions posed by an MLA. Ministers do not ask questions. For comparison, we provide data on the number of questions asked by MLAs on average. This is computed for each MLA for the period he was a private member (i.e. not a Minister). Question data has been calculated for 16th Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly for the full period of the Assembly. This data is based on the daily Agenda of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly posted on its website. The data was accessed on December 1, 2016.

Attendance:

The data indicates the percentage of days a particular MLA attended proceedings of the house. For comparison, we provide data on the average attendance of all MLAs. Attendance data has been calculated up to December 1, 2015 (as the data for the period after that has not been published by the Assembly). This data is based on the daily proceedings of the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Assembly posted on its website. The data was accessed on December 1, 2016.
