List of Data Sources

I have been working on a project to create a searchable file containing active links for data sources. I have compiled an Excel file using Google Docs and I have now decided to share it online for anyone interested. The data sources included cover a wide range of statistical themes. It has been quite effective in my work as I find it especially hard to navigate across multiple databases and memorise the location of variables of interest. Apparently the entries are influenced by my knowledge and my personal research interests.

You are welcome to access/share the document online and download it for personal use. 

I urge users to leave comments if any errors, invalid links e.t.c. are detected.

Please, let me know if you wish to participate in the project or have any ideas for improving the content or presentation.

Immunity and corruption–Part 2

I REPOST THE ARTICLE BY Vasiliki Skreta (New York University) ORIGINALLY POSTED HERE

This is a follow-up on a previous post, which examines the link between politicians’ immunity and corruption. Both posts are based on a new academic study by Karthik Reddy, Moritz Schularick, and Vasiliki Skreta, which provides original and systematic evidence that democracies whose politicians enjoy stronger immunity protection do suffer from more corruption and poorer overall governance. This post summarizes the findings of this study. The summary here.
