Datasets

Enclosed below is the PEIG dataset (Partisan Electoral Interventions by the Great-powers) version 1.01.  This is the version of the dataset as submitted to CMPS with a few minor typos corrected. It includes all known U.S. and Soviet/ Russian partisan electoral interventions, both covert and overt, which had occurred between January 1, 1946 and December 31, 2000.

The zip file includes the dataset, the codebook, a list of intervention cases, Appendixes A & B of the CMPS paper (with additional definitions and explanations about PEIG), and the data for the empirical comparison done in this paper.  You can access the dataset after filling out the download form below (to be used only for informing users about future updates to PEIG and for informing  me about possible directions for future updates of it)
