Abstract

The QoG OECD dataset consist of approximately 1300 variables from approximately 75 data sources. The dataset includes OECD member countries and has high data coverage in terms of geography and time.

In the QoG OECD CS dataset, data from and around 2014 is included. Data from 2014 is prioritized, however, if no data are available for a country for 2014, data for 2015 is included. If no data exists for 2015, data for 2013 is included, and so on up to a maximum of +/- 3 years.

In the QoG OECD TS dataset, data from 1946 to 2017 is included and the unit of analysis is country-year (e.g. Sweden-1946, Sweden-1947 and so on).

In the codebook you can find a description of all data sources and variables. We provide a list of the variables categorized into eighteen thematic topics. Detailed descriptions of all variables are sorted by original data sources. We hope that this will facilitate your search for variables.
