Complexity Inequality and Internet data

Published: 7 June 2024| Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/nppchkfrf3.1


This is the data used in the research "Complexity, Inequality, and Internet". Inequality is quantified using the Gini coefficient after taxes and transfers, sourced from the Standardized World Income Inequality Database, incorporating data from the OECD, World Bank, and ECLAC (Solt, 2020). Explanatory variables include the Economic Complexity Index (ECI) from the Atlas of Economic Complexity (The Growth Lab at Harvard University, 2019), normalized within a range of -3 to +3; real GDP per capita in 2017 US dollars from the Penn World Table (Feenstra, et al., 2015); and internet access, measured as the percentage of the population using this service (The World Bank, 2023). The dataset comprises 126 countries with data spanning from 1995 to 2020. This data is presented in CSV and XLSX formats for further review.
