Archigos: A (Subset of a) Dataset on Political LeadersSource:
These are leader-level data drawn from the Archigos data. Space considerations mean I offer here just a few columns based on these data. Data are version 4.1.
A data frame with 3409 observations on the following 11 variables.
a numeric vector for the Gleditsch-Ward state code
a character vector for observation ID
the unique leader identifier
the leader name
the year the leader was born
a categorical variable for leader gender ("M" for men, "W" for women)
a date for the leader start date
a date for the leader end date
a character vector for the leader's entry type
a character vector for the leader's exit type
a character vector for more information about the leader's exit type
Space considerations mean I can only offer a few columns from the overall data. Archigos data are rich with information. Consult the raw data available on Hein Goeman's website for more.
To best conform with data requirements on CRAN, a few leader names were
renamed if they included irregular characters (e.g. umlauts or accents).
These leaders, in these particular applications, hav been renamed to "(Juan
Orlando) Hernandez" (
HON-2014), "(Antonio) Saca Gonzalez" (
"Julian Trujillo Largacha" (
COL-1878), "Cesar Gaviria Trujillo"
COL-1990), "Gabriel Garcia Moreno" (
ECU-1869), "Marcos A. Morinigo"
PAR-1894-1), "Higinio Morinigo" (
PAR-1940), "Sebastian Pinera"
CHL-2010), "Sauli Niinisto" (
FIN-2012), "Louis Gerhard De Geer"
SWD-1876), "Stefan Lofven" (
SWD-2014), "Lars Lokke Rasmussen"
DEN-2015), and "Fernando de Araujo" (
ETM-2008-1). None of
these names contain these special characters in the data here.
For clarity's sake, I renamed the
ccode column in the raw data to be
gwcode. This is because it may deceive the user peeking into the data
that these are not Correlates of War state codes, but Gleditsch-Ward
