Appendix 1: The Data Set

Common Goods and Evils?
Oxford University Press

The quantitative methods used in this book are based on a newly established data set of 193 countries (see box A-1), which contains data on signature, ratification, and membership. In single cases, the data set has been enlarged to cover additional territories and international organizations active in global crime control (N      =      263, this (p.256) concerns the formal network analysis of the FATF network, see box A-1). The underlying data sources have been web pages related to the different agreements. Additional information, such as that related to the establishment of Financial Intelligence Units or policy change and human trafficking, has been researched from websites of international organizations or respective countries and coded in a way to achieve comparability. Most data were collected in August 2010; a detailed coding scheme is available from the author. In sum, the collected data provide a large and unique quantitative data set on global crime governance and related national policies worldwide. The overall time span covered is from 1960 to 2010.
