Welcome to the World Economics and Politics Dataverse

The World Economics and Politics (WEP) Dataverse is a joint collaboration between the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Governance at Princeton University and the Security and Political Economy (SPEC) Lab at the University of Southern California. This data resource merges together 87 of the most commonly used datasets related to the field of comparative and international political economy.

Datasets and variables are divided into 4 general categories: Economic, Political, Social/Cultural, and Geographic. The World Economics and Politics Dataverse webpage allows users to download as many or as few of the 885 variables from these datasets as needed. The tabs above will show the different datasets, variables, and countries available in the WEP Dataverse, as well as time coverage and the category for each variable/dataset.
