This paper introduces a complete redesign of the popular EUGene software, called NewGene. Like EUGene, NewGene is software designed to eliminate many of the difficulties commonly involved in constructing large international relations data sets. NewGene is a stand-alone Microsoft Windows and Osx based program for the construction of annual, monthly, and daily data sets for the variety of decision making units (e.g. countries, leaders, organizations, etc) used in quantitative studies of international relations. It also provides users the ability to construct units of analysis ranging from monads (e.g. country-year), to dyads (e.g. country1-country2-year), to extra-dyadic observations called k-ads (e.g. country1-country2-…-countryk-year). NewGene’s purpose is to provide a highly flexible platform on which users can construct datasets for international relations research using pre-loaded data or by incorporating their own data.
