Abstract

This paper presents a new data set on electoral systems and outlines its potential uses in further research exploring the connections between electoral systems and economic outcomes. The data set provides indicators of the degree to which individual politicians can further their careers by appealing to narrow geographic constituencies on the one hand, or party constituencies on the other.
