Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem)

About V-Dem

Varieties of Democracy (V-Dem) is a new approach to conceptualizing and measuring democracy. We provide a multidimensional and disaggregated dataset that reflects the complexity of the concept of democracy as a system of rule that goes beyond the simple presence of elections. The V-Dem project distinguishes between seven high-level principles of democracy: electoral, liberal, participatory, deliberative, egalitarian, majoritarian and consensual, and collects data to measure these principles. 

It is a collaboration among more than 50 scholars worldwide which is co-hosted by the Department of Political Science at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden; and the Kellogg Institute at the University of Notre Dame, USA. With four Principal Investigators (PIs), fifteen Project Managers (PMs) with special responsibility for issue areas, more than thirty Regional Managers (RMs), 170 Country Coordinators (CCs), Research Assistants, and 2,800 Country Experts (CEs), the V-Dem project is one of the largest social science data collection projects focusing on research.

Brief information about V-Dem can be found here: Varieties of Democracy Brief.

V-Dem Project released a new and even larger version of the democracy dataset, now covering 17 million data points on democracy and 177 countries in the world up to 2016. 

V-Dem’s data is becoming the leading source of information on democracy used by scholars, as well as organizations, such as the World Bank, Transparency International, UNDP, European Commission, Mo Ibrahim Foundation, the Resource Governance Institute, International IDEA, as well as numerous NGOs around the world. 

The dataset contains over 350 unique and disaggregated democracy indicators, more than 40 mid-level indices, and 5 high-level indices (electoral, liberal, participatory, deliberative and egalitarian democracy) from 1900 to 2016.
