World Handbook of Political and Social Indicators II: Raw Data, 1950-1967 (ICPSR 5029)
Principal Investigator(s): Taylor, Charles Lewis; Hudson, Michael C.
This file contains two sets of raw data. One dataset contains information used to construct aggregate measures of fractionalization and concentration, the other contains data used to construct measures of inequality. The fractionalization and concentration data are recorded for each city, political party, etc., for these variables: city populations, ethnic groups, language groups, export commodities, export receiving countries, distribution of votes by political party, and distribution of seats in the lower legislative house. The inequality data are recorded as distributions of farms, acreage, labor forces and gross domestic product. Data were collected by the World Data Analysis Program at Yale University.
These data are available only to users at ICPSR member institutions. Because you are not logged in, we cannot verify that you will be able to download these data.
