§ Data appendix (variable descriptions and sources; information on labor rights indicator)
· These files provide replication data for the above article. These analyses provide annual observations for 90 developing nations (listed below) for 1985-2002. There are quite a few country-years included in the dataset, but not used in the estimations reported in the CPS paper, because of missing data; the attached files provide labor rights scores for those cases, and data on other independent variables, as available. We plan to make available a broader set of labor rights data (covering all countries for the same period, with plans to extend the indicator to include 2003 and 2004) available in the near future.
When using data from this dataset, please
cite both the dataset and, where appropriate, the original source (i.e. the
World Bank’s World Development Indicators).
