Abstract: Decades of scholarship offer empirical evidence for the diffusion of public policies. However, much of this research has emphasized the policy and not the process of diffusion. Ignoring the process, the literature has primarily focused on one venue for policy diffusion—U.S. state legislatures. Consequently, there has been scant emphasis on diffusion in the other state venues—e.g., direct democracy initiatives and referenda, legislative referenda, state court decisions, and gubernatorial executive orders—available to political elites, interest groups, and citizens to pursue policy change. This is surprising since states have increasingly adopted policies through alternative means outside the orthodox channel of the legislature. In turn, we know very little about how, when, and why policies might be enacted across similar institutional venues. Importantly, this paper examines if the venue selection in which policies are pursued also spreads. To test the possibility of venue selection diffusion, I explore the transmission of both anti- and pro-same-sex-marriage laws across U.S. states. The results suggest that the venues selected for policy enactment by innovative states also diffuse.

Abstract: We introduce a new statistical method – Multilevel Diffusion Curves – to model how multiple innovations spread through an industry. Specifically, we analyze when radio stations begin broadcasting 534 pop singles. Ordinarily radio stations imitate one another, an endogenous process producing a characteristic “s-curve.” However, payola can dwarf this process and produce a characteristic negative exponential curve, controlling for the song artist's number of successful songs in the past year. Therefore the shape of a song’s cumulative adoption function indicates whether its rise involved corruption. We validate this heuristic against a panel of songs with a documented history of payola and a comparable set of songs with no such allegations. Compared to earlier methods, Multilevel Diffusion Curves allow testing of more types of hypotheses, model a greater range of data, and are statistically more efficient and precise.

Abstract: Much of the literature on international policy diffusion emphasizes the effect of conjunctural features of policy choice such as cross-border information flows, characteristics of the innovation itself, or of the international social system in which the p

Abstract: For nearly 100 years, scholars have been examining the diffusion of innovations. For political science scholars, the diffusion of innovation literature is centered on the common theme of “policy diffusion,” or how innovative policies and programs spread from one adopting governmental entity to the next with most research focusing on U.S. state governments. As Shipan and Volden (2012) note, scholars and practitioners are increasingly interested in understanding policy diffusion, and, while there are a several key lessons to be derived from the current literature, there remain a number of directions for improving our understanding policy diffusion processes. This article seeks to help future research in policy diffusion by proposing and testing an enhanced unified policy diffusion model. The enhanced unified model draws from research based on Berry and Berry’s unified event history analysis model and Boushey’s contagion model. However, the model also incorporates a number of additional variables, such as the role of existing state statutes, and methodological techniques that can improve our comprehensive understanding policy diffusion along both vertical and horizontal dimensions of diffusion for U.S. States. The results demonstrate the significance of wide range of variables but confirm expectations about time-bound interpretation of each variable.
