Version V1

This study contains a subset of the World Handbook of Political and Social Indicators II data on national attributes and domestic violence for 136 nations in the period 1955-1964. The teaching package is intended to provide data for examining current theories of domestic violence and to introduce students to a number of topics in quantitative aggregate analyses. Data are provided in five-year periods for the economic, political, and social characteristics of the nations. Economic variables provide information on the gross national product (GNP), energy consumption per capita, sectorial income inequality, land inequality, and calories intake per capita. Political variables provide information on government sanctions, political executions, deaths from political violence, armed attacks, anti-government demonstrations, riots, political strikes, and the relaxation of government restrictions. Variables on social characteristics include population density, literacy rates, and the number of physicians per one million population.
