Abstract

In the main paper we propose two new indicators of de facto constitutional constraints. The indicators are based on the presence or the absence of easily observable political events. This makes the proposed measures relatively objective and easy to verify relative to the most widely used indicators of de jure and de facto constitutions. This paper describes the indicators and demonstrates their usefulness for research on economic development.

Note: The Materials contain data and methodology description for the paper 'A Proposal for a More Objective Measure of De Facto Constitutional Constraints' written for the Constitutional Political Economy Journal (Forthcoming).
