Description of this data

This is the dataset used in the paper Between Rhetoric and Action: Do NGOs Go Where They Are Needed? (https://doi.org/10.1007/s11266-018-0024-9)

I use adult illiteracy rate, the percentage of population without access to safe drinking water, the percentage of population without access to sanitation, and infant mortality rate to assess the level of need in a district. The data for these variables are taken from the national census report and the human development report published by UNDP.

This study uses the proportion of population employed in the non-agricultural sector, proportion of urban population, road density (in km per 100 km2), distance of the district headquarter from Kathmandu (in km), and log of average capital budget expenditure (in Million NRS.) per 10,000 residents between 1996 and 2001 to assess the resource dependence hypothesis. The data for these variables come from UNDP’s human development report, national census report of 2001, and two other government agencies.

For the measure of political engagement thesis, this study uses the number of member of parliaments (per 10,000 residents) and the voter turnout ratio in the national parliamentary election of 1999. Data for these variables are acquired from the UNDP and election commission of Nepal. Finally, to test the social capital and clustering thesis, this study uses the density of preexisting NGOs per 10,000 residents in a location and the breakdown of density in four major sectors.
