Democracy and Economic Growth Data

1) Sensitivity Analyses

Summary: This paper explores the relationship between democracy and economic growth by performing a series of sensitivity analyses, involving multiple measures of democracy, multiple model specifications, and multiple time periods. The data are pooled by country-decade and are available as both an Excel file and a STATA file. The Codebook explains the individual sources and coding rules for the existing datasets used to construct this file.

Economic Inequality and Democratic Support

Summary: Does economic inequality influence citizens’ support for democracy? We distinguish between prospective versus retrospective evaluations of democratic support as well as between egocentric versus sociotropic evaluations. We test the resulting hypotheses in a multi-level analysis conducted in 40 democracies.

Dictating Development: How Europe Shaped the Global Periphery

Summary: Chapter 4 of this book contains numerous statistical analyses that employ the two datasets posted below. The first dataset is a cross-sectional dataset that is used for most of the tables in Chapter 4. The second dataset is a pooled dataset in five-year averages. This dataset was employed for the time-series cross-sectional regressions presented in Table 4.7 and 4.8. Each dataset is available as both an Excel file and STATA file. The Codebook explains the individual sources and coding rules for the existing datasets used to construct these files.
