Data for 115 polities is contained in this study. Each polity has nominal and ordinal data on 59 "raw characteristics" and 194 "finished characteristics." The raw characteristics include economic-demographic indicators and more subjective measures such as degree of political modernization and interest articulation. The finished characteristics are dichotomous variables which contrast groups of polities in various ways. Each polity is classified on one side or another of each dichotomy.
