MPDb (Manifesto Project Database) is the facility at the core of the MARPOR project. The facility stores and distributes the original texts as collected: and also the quantified datasets based on them (plus other related datasets). Besides facilitating the distribution of documents and estimates MPDb also provides computer-associated input facilities for coders. Any coded document can thus be fed immediately into the collection without waiting for periodic updates. Any dataset requested by users in stored for future retrieval, so it can be used to replicate and confirm published analyses. MPDb is unusual among data-archives in being dedicated to one dataset and having coding and entry facilities. The chapter shows however how it meets all the general criteria laid down for efficient archiving and distribution, so that in technical terms it can serve users very well with the most advanced facilities.
