    This study examined the content of news items that appeared in newspapers from Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore during the last three months of 1962, 1966, 1970, and 1972. Included were news items covering domestic events in Japan, relations between Japan and the other three countries, relations between Japan and the rest of the world, domestic events in Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore, their relations among themselves, and their relations with the rest of the world. Further data were collected during 1970 concerning relations between Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore and the following countries: United States, Great Britain, Australia, West Germany, and the Netherlands. Variables document the source and publication date of the news items and outline the structure of the events.

Sampled Universe
News items published in newspapers from Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore in the last three months of 1962, 1966, 1970, and 1972.
Sampling
In Indonesia, the INDONESIAN OBSERVER was used in 1962 and the DJAKARTA TIMES in 1966, 1970, and 1972. In Singapore, STRAITS TIMES was used for all years except 1962, when data were collected from the MALAY MAIL. Data on domestic and international events involving Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, and Singapore were collected on a daily basis. Events reflecting the Southeast Asian countries' relations with the United States, Great Britain, Australia, West Germany, and the Netherlands were only documented for every third day in the last quarter of 1970.
Collection Mode
  • The original documentation also lists NIHON KEIZAI SHINBUN as a source for Japanese news. However, none of the cases in the dataset carries the code for this publication.
