Scroll down for full spreadsheet

Seventy-four (74) projects are listed, each of which establish, or heavily rely on, a particular index of governance across nine categories.

 

Column 1 lists the author(s) of each project, either by name or organization, as presented on the title page.

Column 2 lists the titles for each indicator project, article, or dataset.

Columns 3-11 represent the nine categories of interest:

DM = democracy

EL = elections

PF = press freedom

HR = human rights

SF = state fragility

CP = corruption

RL = rule of law

DS =delivery of services

BL = business and labor climate

EF = economic freedom

Column 12 lists the years for which the data was calculated.  In almost every case, the report was published during the year of the most recent date.

  • For example, if the report calculates data from 1976-2006, it was most likely published in 2006.

Column 13 provides the number of countries, territories, and/or ethnic groups that are represented in the dataset.

Column 14 includes links to the datasets, articles, and/or websites of each project.
