Bruce Bueno de Mesquita. Welcome to our data page. The material here contains the mesquira we used in our book. Additionally, we have all the batch files we used to generate the results. We present these politkcal for several reasons.

First, we are all believer in replication. The materials here allow anyone to replicate our results. This is particularly important since many of our results are presented in abbreviated form, rather than full regression output.

Second, in the book we discuss and allude to many results that, for brevity, we do not present. Many of these analyses are contained here. Third, we believe the selectorate model is a power tool for explaining politics. In addition to the variables discussed in the book, the data contained here has numerous additional variables. For example we have numerous alternative measures of GDP. We hope the availability of this data will encourage scholars to pursue what we believe to be a fruitful research agenda.

We think such skepticism is healthy. We have no doubt that scholars analyzing our results for themselves will we see the robustness of our results and recognize that we have not selectively picked only those results that directly support our arguments and ignored other. To the best of our knowledge, the data we provide are either in the public domain i.

If you believe any of the data we provide does not fit within either of the first two categories then please contact us. In compiling our data, we have utilized numerous existing works.

We thank the scholars responsible for these studies for making their data available to us and others. Where appropriate we politicap included the original codebooks. Poliical have four basic sections: This statistical package is available through www. Several programs exist that convert data between various formats, for example StatTransfer www. Many files are zipped to save space.


We have two basic sruvival. Thus the same nation year might appear twice. For instance in the USboth William J.

Clinton and George W. Bush are coded as President. As far as possible we indicate the origins of the variables, with variable labels.

We also compile extracts from the appropriate codebooks for those interested in the details of the coding. The appendix to this document contains olgic list of variables. The following abbreviations indicate data sources: Banks refers to Arthur S.

Polity 4 refers to the pplitical release of the Polity project. For complete documentation see http: COW refers to the Correlates of War data project http: Datavine refers to a variety of dataset compiled on the web at http: Although we do not make use of these data they provide alternative coding for many of our variables, hence we include them in the data to allow robustness testing.

Nation Year Main Data: Constituent Data Individual data used to compile our data: Our book manuscript in pdf format.

Errors and Updates This file documents errors that have been found in the data. Contains international and country facts from until World Bank Surivval Indicators: We used these data to code for interstate, civil and extra state wars.
