  • Abstract

    The Guanxi-based Network Analysis Dataset is a unique dataset created from the biographical information of the roughly 1,700 Central Committee members from 1922 to 2011. It also lists birth/death years, birth province, educational background, military experience, Party career assignments, government jobs, visits abroad, and any special remarks. Each Central Committee member’s education level, military generation, provincial origin, kinship, and patron‐client information was coded for each Central Committee‐year. Individual attributes were also collected for each Central Committee member to indicate if he or she was a member of the Politburo or Standing Committee, a Long Marcher, previously purged and rehabilitated, a general officer, a technocrat, and/or a member of the Central Advisory Commission, as appropriate.
