For each series, we calculated reliability scores, counting as errors those cases where both coders did not agree. In the case of the speeches, we obtained a reliability of 93 percent at the topic level and 90 percent at the subtopic level. For the rest of the databases, we used the same method, obtaining equally encouraging scores. We began by coding speeches and continually updated and revised our coding system until solid intercoder reliabilities were achieved. Next, we proceeded to code the rest of the databases, having weekly meetings to solve coding questions.

In particular, during periods such as the current one of severe economic crisis, attention is perhaps justly focused on government efforts to improve the economy and to deal with the social issues that follow from the Great Recession. But an underappreciated corollary of this focus of attention is that the government goes on making important decisions affecting the lives of millions of Spanish citizens in many other policy domains, and these are the objects of few official statements and even less media coverage.

On the basis of new moral arguments related to the unacceptable discrimination against a handicapped fetus, the PP has tried to pass a strongly conservative regulatory reform without the support of opposition parties, the medical profession, or an important part of public opinion.
