Below you’ll find the data-sets I’ve used in my previous articles. The data are almost always in tab- or comma-separated format with a header row containing variable names. That is, you would read them into R with
I’m sure Stata’s import command and SPSS’s Import from file… function will do for those who don’t use R.

- Data from Agcom on screen-time. I used this data in my article, The Gospel Truths of Italian Media Bias. The data was scraped from PDFs put on the Agcom website. I cannot guarantee that it doesn’t contain errors.
- Data on turnover of public broadcasting executives. I used this data in my article, Explaining the de facto independence of public broadcasters. The data is based on Lexis-Nexis searches and information supplied in some cases from the broadcasters themselves. Some days of appointment dates, and exceptionally some months, are missing.
- Data on the de jure independence of public broadcasters. I used this data in my article, Explaining the de facto independence of public broadcasters. See the article for details on the sources of these data, and information about the variables contained.
- Final data used in my article Explaining the de facto independence of public broadcasters.
- Data on the de jure and de facto independence of regulators. I used this data in my article together with Christel Koop, Shall the law set them free? The formal and actual independence of regulatory agencies.
- Anonymised data from a survey of regulators worldwide. Information on the governance provisions and the sector is available, but other information (country, FTE staff, year of establishment) has been deleted. This is necessary due to the anonymity promise we made when we initially approached our regulators.
- Comune-level electoral returns from the 2006 election and the 2008 election. I used these data in my working paper, Party mergers and vote shifts in Italy. The data were scraped from the Ministry of the Interior website.
- Comune-level electoral returns (in percentage form, for the largest fifteen parties) for the 2013 elections. I used these to make some pretty pictures. Email for other formats / raw vote counts.
- Roll-call data from the 14th [zipped tab-delimited alternate] and 15th [zipped tab-delimited alternate] sessions of the Italian Chamber of Deputies. These data have been cleaned by me and converted to a rollcall object from the pscl package in R. The data do not include votes on motions and ordini del giorno.
