Wiki Version:
<p>This is the dataset corresponding to the paper "Political Pressure on Central Banks" by Carola Binder. The working paper is available here: <a href="https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3244148" rel="nofollow">https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3244148</a>. Note that the dataset has been updated since the working paper was written. </p> <p>The dataset is a quarterly balanced panel covering 118 central banks from 2010Q1 through 2019Q1. It was constructed using a narrative approach, by hand-coding reports from Business Monitor International and Economist Intelligence Unit.</p> <p>The key variable is "Pressure," which takes value 0 if there was no report of political pressure on the central bank in that quarter, 1 if the central bank was reportedly facing but resisting pressure, and 2 if the central bank was reportedly succumbing to pressure. See working paper for complete details.</p> <p>You are free to use the data. Please cite the working paper. Send questions or comments to cbinder1@haverford.edu.</p>
