QoG Standard Data
The QoG Standard dataset is our largest dataset. It consists of approximately 2500 variables from more than 100 data sources.
In the QoG Standard CS dataset, data from and around 2013 is included. Data from 2013 is prioritized, however, if no data is available for a country for 2013, data for 2014 is included. If no data exists for 2014, data for 2012 is included, and so on up to a maximum of +/- 3 years.
In the QoG Standard TS dataset, data from 1946 to 2016 is included and the unit of analysis is country-year (e.g. Sweden-1946, Sweden-1947 and so on).
In the codebook you can find a description of all data sources and variables. We provide a list of the variables categorized into eighteen thematic topics. Detailed descriptions of all variables are sorted by original data sources. We hope that this will facilitate your search for variables.
In 2009, the QoG Standard Dataset received the Lijphart, Przeworski, Verba Award for Best Dataset by the APSA Comparative Politics Section.
