      In the QoG Standard CS dataset, data from and around 2014 is included. Data from 2014 is prioritized, however, if no data is available for a country for 2014, data for 2015 is included. If no data exists for 2015, data for 2013 is included, and so on up to a maximum of +/- 3 years. In the QoG Standard TS dataset, data from 1946 to 2017 is included and the unit of analysis is country-year (e.g. Sweden-1946, Sweden-1947 and so on).   Citation: Teorell, Jan, Stefan Dahlberg, Sören Holmberg, Bo Rothstein, Natalia Alvarado Pachon & Richard Svensson. 2018.
