Introduction


The Authoritarian Regimes Dataset (ARD) is a comprehensive dataset on authoritarian regimes in the world between 1972-2014. The dataset enables researchers, students, activists and development professionals to distinguish between different authoritarian regimes, follow global and regional trends in authoritarianism and study the specific institutional trajectories of a particular country or set of countries. Please see our published articles and codebook for a thorough discussion on the conceptual and operational basis of our typology. Users who wish to use the data should cite the following articles:
