Version V1

This study contains data on 1,166 United Nations roll call votes on the issue of colonialism by 124 member nations in the period 1946-1967. Information is provided for the name of the session of the United Nations in which the vote occurred (e.g., the United Nations General Assembly Plenary session, joint committee session, political committee session, committee on granting independence to colonial countries, the Security Council, Trusteeship Council, the ad hoc committee on the Palestinian Question), session number, nature of the vote (e.g., procedural or substantive), object of the vote, constitutional and structural implications of the issue, category of the issue, and records of particular countries' votes. The roll call vote is the case, and the vote of each member and other descriptive information are the variables.
