Abstract: Comparative Welfare States Data Set (CWSDS) is a joint effort by comparative welfare-state scholars at the Northwestern University, University of North Carolina, Duke University and Indiana University. Its data cover 18 OECD countries from 1960 to 2003 and include many economic, political, and policy variables. Topics include wage and salary, social spending, revenue, and welfare state institutions, labor force and labor institutions, demography, national accounts and economic time series (from Penn World Table Mark 6.1), and politics (e.g. voter turnout in national elections.) Most of the data sources are from OECD or ILO. Some are compiled by the principal investigators.
