About this tool:

The QoG Data Finder is a a tool for people interested in finding data about Quality of Government and related concepts.

With the numbers of efforts to create and publish reliable data in political science, it has become more difficult to know what data is available, to know if it comes at the individual level, country level, if it is openly accessible or needs registration. Sometimes, the user wants to know what other data efforts have the researchers and institutions have undertaken and where to find these sources.

Our hope is that this platform is a starting point to find data on particular topics, sources and categories and makes the efforts of teaching, learning, researching and reporting in political science a bit easier.
