STATA replication package for tables and figures presented in «Regional Resources and Democratic Secessionism», Journal of Public Economics (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jpubeco.2019.104073).
Although resources have been shown to influence secessionist conflicts in developing countries, their effect
in established democracies has largely been neglected. We integrate regional resources and inter-regional
transfers in a model of democratic secession, and show that relative regional income correlates positively with secessionist party success in a large panel of regions. To establish causality, our difference-in-differences and triple-differences designs exploit that Scotland and Wales both feature separatist parties, but only an independent Scotland would profit from oil discoveries off its coast. We document an economically and statistically significant positive effect of regional resources and rule out plausible alternative explanations.
This is the data associated with the paper "Using referenda to improve targeting and decrease costs of conditional cash transfers." This dataset is also available through the World Banks Microdata Repository, which contains a broader description of the data collection process, in January of 2019: http://microdata.worldbank.org/index.php/home.
