Populism is dramatically shifting the global political landscape. In this paper, we summarize the literature defining populism and identify some of its main features. Relying on the extensive literature on populism, we introduce a new database on populism in power around the world (1990-2018). Using this database, we discuss some of the key trends in varieties of populism and regional trends. By aggregating much of the accumulated knowledge on populism into a single global database, we hope to facilitate systematic and cross-regional studies on the causes and effects of populism.

Keywords: populism, data, cross-national
