Description

The QoG Institute is an independent research institute within the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg. The main objective of our research is to address the theoretical and empirical problem of how political institutions of high quality can be created and maintained.

To achieve said goal, the QoG Institute makes comparative data on QoG and its correlates publicly available. To accomplish this, we have compiled several datasets that draw on a number of freely available data sources, including aggregated individual-level data.

The QoG OECD Datasets focus exclusively on OECD member countries. They have a high data coverage in terms of geography and time.
In the QoG OECD TS dataset, data from 1946 to 2021 is included and the unit of analysis is country-year (e.g., Sweden-1946, Sweden-1947, etc.).

In the QoG OECD Cross-Section dataset, data from and around 2018 is included. Data from 2018 is prioritized, however, if no data are available for a country for 2018, data for 2019 is included. If no data for 2019 exists, data for 2017 is included, and so on up to a maximum
