After our success in using big data to predict that Emmanuel Macron would beat Marine Le Pen to become president of France, we are turning our attention to Germany, where voters will decide whether Angela Merkel remains chancellor this September.

As we crunch the numbers and build our model, we would like to hear from you. What would be useful to you? What other big data predictions are out there? What do we have to keep in mind about Germany’s notoriously complicated electoral system and changing electorate?

Have a look at the French Election Tracker, our predictions and our assessment of what we got right (and wrong) last time — and let us know what you think in the comments below.
