The World Economics and Politics (WEP) Dataverse is a queryable data resource for comparative and international political economy.
Data are available for more than 200 countries, with observations spanning from 1800 until 2018, when available.
The WEP database amasses country-year and data-year data from nearly 100 datasets.
The database includes over 900 variables, covering politics, economics, geography, social and cultural. Users can download as many or as few as needed.
Users can customize tailored datasets by specifying the desired countries, years, and variables. Selected data will automatically be compiled into one downloadable file, eliminating the need to merge data from across various sources.
