CSES Module 1 and Module 2 Macro Booklet

The CSES Portuguese team spent a significant amount of time organizing a booklet that expands on the macro information available for CSES Module 1 and CSES Module 2. The team contacted CSES collaborators in order to fill in missing data and obtain clarification on a variety of items. The available information was systematized in several tables. The resulting booklet divides the information into three parts (regime types, electoral systems, and political parties) and includes an index.

Due to limited resources, work on the booklet ceased in July 2005. The contributors encourage anyone who is interested in doing so to complete the file, so long as the Portuguese team is credited for their efforts in any resulting product.
