Description
  • Abstract

    This data collection provides cross-national data on the external determinants of the division of power and wealth in lesser developed countries. The study aggregates data, produced by the United Nations, the World Bank, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Seventy lesser-developed countries located in Subsaharan Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, and southern Europe are included. These countries were selected on the basis of data availability. The variables provide information on exports as a proportion of Gross National Product (GNP), export concentration, commodity concentration, trade composition, terms of trade, types of investment, aid concentration, debt service, arms transfers, educational indicators, social welfare indicators, taxes, unemployment, security measures, GNP indicators, index of national resource endowment, and population.
