International Governmental Organizations: Memberships and Characteristics, 1981 and 1992 (ICPSR 6737)
Principal Investigator(s): Jacobson, Harold K.
This collection contains four datasets describing the membership and characteristics of International Governmental Organizations (IGOs) in 1981 and 1992. For the International Governmental Organizations data (Parts 1 and 2), the variables consist of organizations and the countries are cases. Parts 3 and 4, the Countries and Territories data, list countries as variables and organizations as cases. Additional variables for countries include geography, gross domestic product (GDP), and status of sovereignty. Other variables used to describe the IGOs cover basis for membership, function of IGO, annual budget, and whether the IGO's function was largely scientific.
