Abstract [en]

The MaxRange datasets provide information on political institutions for all countries of the world going back to 1789 on a monthly and yearly basis, and to 1600 on a yearly basis only. The yearly dataset spanning 1600 to 2015 has over 90,000 country-year observations, and from 1789 over 600,000 observations in its monthly format. Created by Max Rånge, the datasets aggregate specific attributes to create nominal and ordinal rankings of political regimes on a 1-1,000 scale. In addition to supporting a rigorous classification of democratic and nondemocratic regimes, the dataset allows researchers to exploit institutional variation and to explore alternative ways of aggregating political institutions. The MaxRange monthly dataset on political institutions is by far the biggest and most comprehensive political regime dataset to date, as it offers several advantages compared to other available data. MaxRange database, as a research instrument, permits historically minded scholars to address a number of issues related to the historical dynamics of political institutions in an unprecedented manner.
