Worldwide Governance Research Indicators Dataset, 2002

Estimates of six dimensions of governance covering 199 countries and territories for four time periods: 1996, 1998, 2000, and 2002, based on several hundred individual variables measuring perceptions of governance that are drawn from 25 separate data sources constructed by 18 different organizations. Individual measures of governance are assigned to categories capturing key dimensions of governance, using an unobserved components model to construct six aggregate governance indicators in each of the four periods. Point estimates of the dimensions of governance are presented with the margins of error for each country for the four periods. In the accompanying methodological paper, the authors address various issues, including the interpretation and use of the data given the estimated margins of error. These indicators are an update and expansion of previous work initiated in 1998.
