Quantitative scholars in international relations often draw repeatedly on the same sources of country-year data across a diverse range of projects. The IPE Data Resource seeks to provide a public good to the field by standardizing and merging together 951 variables from 78 core IPE data sources into a single dataset, increasing efficiency and reducing the risk of data management errors. Easier access to data both encourages researchers to perform more robustness checks than they otherwise might and makes it easier for teachers of quantitative research methods to assign realistic exercises to their students. This resource will be updated and expanded annually and is available via the Harvard Dataverse Network.
