I was trying to apply some quantitative analysis to the laws that the Parliament voted (both approved and rejected) and tried, unsuccessfully, to determine which of those were the most relevant.

So my question is, which is the most accepted way, as objectively as possible, to determine the most relevant voted laws by a Parliament?

Here, when speaking about relevance I'm referring to those that are the most determinant to define a party's ideology.

  • There is about a dozens metrics you could apply here. How many people it affects, how often it affects them, how severely it affects them, how it interacts with other laws, how much media attention it gets, how it affects the overall budget... the list goes on. I voted to close as primarily opinion-based.

  • Note that a party's ideology can change over time. For example, the Labour Party in the UK currently has a leader who is much more left-wing than his predecessors, and so is aiming to pull the party to the left with him. Jan 14 '16 at 11:32
  • I think, this question can be salvaged if you added information about your prior attempts and reasons why you think the results are not satisfactory.
