QoG Basic Data

The QoG Basic dataset is a smaller version of the QoG Standard dataset. It consists of approximately 400 variables from 70 different data sources.

In the QoG Basic CS dataset, data from and around 2016 is included. Data from 2016 is prioritized, however, if no data is available for a country for 2016, data for 2017 is included. If no data exists for 2017, data for 2015 is included, and so on up to a maximum of +/- 3 years.

In the QoG Basic TS dataset, data from 1946 to 2019 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.
