Abstract: This collection offers data on economic, political and military aspects of social processes within and between nations belonging to the European nations-system since World War II. Two separate files are available: the National File contains data on 48 national characteristics of social processes within nations, and the International File contains data on four international characteristics of social processes between nations. Variables in both files have been measured at five-year intervals beginning in 1945 and ending in 1980. Variables in the National File include population of the country, total land area of the country, imports/exports, defense expenditures, energy production, agricultural production, manufacturing, transportation, and military personnel and equipment. The International File supplies information on exports and on cooperative and conflictual actions.
