Nation Data Bank

Led by Nils Petter Gleditsch
Jan 1985 - May 2011
This project made cross-national data on economic development, governance, conflict, etc. available in a teaching package with a training manuyal. After it was launched in August 1990, the teaching package was last updated in 1995 and was sold to Norwegian high schools until the end of the 1990s. Altogether, about 150 schools have purchased one or more versions of Nasjonsdata, and the instruction manual has been sold in some 5,000 copies. The question of updating the database and making it available in a Windows version is on hold.
