Complementary Macro Level Data for CSES Modules 1 and 2

This data file contains a total of 43 variables including a wide range of topics such as electoral institutional, party system, regime type and socio economic information. The objective of all this effort is to provide additional systematized contextual data for researchers who wish to perform multilevel analysis of CSES survey data. CSES Module 1 and 2 databases already contain a great deal of macro level variables, but focus mainly on institutional aspects. The data included here have some basic institutional features that may overlap with the CSES database, but also include some new types of variables on party systems, regime types and socioeconomic indicators.

The June 2007 version of the file includes all of the election studies appearing in CSES Module 1, and the 32 election studies appearing in the fourth advance release of CSES Module 2.
