Public Finance of Indonesia 1817-1940

Jan Luiten Van Zanden & Joost Mellegers
The dataset in this datapackage was constructed for the 'Indonesian Economic History' project, which has been a concerted effort of several researchers at different universities and research institutions. The aim of the project was to reconstruct the national accounts of Java (1815-1939) and of Indonesia (1900-2000) and to analyze the long-term evolution of the economy of Indonesia in this period. The reconstructed national accounts form the prime source of information about the economy's development over...

World Bank's PovcalNet Distributional Data for Poverty Research

Michail Moatsos
Using materials and methods already made publicly available by Dykstra et al. (2014), I hereby make available the latest distributional data from World Bank's PovcalNet as of October 2nd, 2018. These data are used in the poverty estimates by the PovcalNet interactive online tool. Having these data locally, an independent scholar can experiment with extensive poverty line configurations that PovcalNet cannot accommodate at its present version. NOTE: the data contained here are provided under a...

Indonesian Military Height Data

Bas Van Leeuwen & Peter Földvári
This height data set, constructed from Indonesian military data, Indonesia Family Life Surveys (IFLS) and a sample of Europeans born in Indonesia who joined the Royal Dutch Indies Army (KNIL), was constructed to generate a trend of heights in Java and the Outer Provinces throughout the twentieth century. The data set contains information about education, ethnicity, occupation, height, place of birth, place of last residence, migration and religion. The study of heights provides a promising...

NELLS wave 1 and wave 2 data with linked alter information for the CDN

Eva Vriens
This dataset was constructed based on waves 1 and 2 of the NELLS panel. The NELLS survey contained ego-network questions in both waves. These questions asked respondents to list up to 5 alters with whom they discussed important personal matters (i.e., measurement of the core discussion network). Follow-up questions asked about personal characteristics of these alters. We used the original data file with the names of all alters listed (obtained from the panels' administrators) in...

Corporate network data - UK

Gerhard Schnyder & John F. Wilson
The dataset contains data on the composition of the boards of directors (BoD) of the 250 largest UK companies by net assets for nine benchmark years between 1904 and 2010 (1904, 1938, 1958, 1976, 1983, 1993, 1997, 2003 and 2010). The sample is composed of 50 financial firms and 200 non-financial firms, categorized according to the dominant sectoral activity of each firm. In order to compile this data, we relied partly on existing datasets, 2...

Corporate network data - France

Pierre Francois & Claire Lemercier
According to the general principles defined by Thomas David and Gerharda Westerhuis in order to insure comparability between countries, we have selected the ca. 50 biggest French financial and the ca. 200 biggest French non-financial firms for each benchmark date. Due to constraints in our sources, we however departed from studies on other countries by always choosing share capital as our sampling criterion. Other minor peculiarities of our sampling scheme can be found in the...

Corporate network data - Switserland

Stéphanie Ginalski, Thomas David & André Mach
To create this dataset we used a sample of the 100 largest Swiss companies for eight benchmark years in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries (1910, 1929, 1937, 1957, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2010). We included the 25 most important firms in the financial sector (banks, insurance companies and financial companies) and the 75 largest industrial firms. Moreover, we derived the composition of the board of directors (BoD) and the main executive director(s) (1– 4 people,...

Economic Growth in the Cape Colony

Johan Fourie & Jan Luiten Van Zanden
The dataset 'Economic Growth in the Cape Colony' was downloaded from the Centre for Global Economic History website, of Utrecht University (http://cgeh.nl/economic-growth-cape-colony). On these data and estimates the researchers based their reconstruction of GDP for the Cape Colony (1701-1795). In this dataset are also related data for the nineteenth century making it possible to bridge the gap between the estimates and the official series of national accounts for South-Africa starting in 1911. A large part...

Dataset - Reciprocal relations between symptoms of complicated grief, depression, and anxiety following job loss: A cross-lagged analysis

J.H.W. Van Eersel
Abstract Objective: Involuntary job loss can lead to symptoms of complicated grief (CG), depression, and anxiety. Information about the temporal linkage between these symptoms is limited and may have implications for the treatment of those suffering from mental health complaints after dismissal. The aim of this study was to explore the possible reciprocal relationships between symptoms of CG, depression, and anxiety following involuntary job loss. Method: We recruited 128 Dutch workers who had lost their...

Large-scale biaxial experiments on frictionally heterogeneous faults: Mechanical data and selected strain and image data

Loes Buijze & Yanshuang Guo
Frictional heterogeneity within fault zones is one of the factors proposed to explain the spectrum of slow, intermediate, and fast slip behaviors exhibited by faults in nature. Numerical modeling shows how even a simplified model setup incorporating sliding on a velocity-weakening (VW) patch surrounded by velocity-strengthening (VS) material can reproduce a rich variety of slip behaviors resembling nature. However, experimental investigations of sliding on heterogeneous faults are few. In this study, the slip behavior of...

Data supplementary to \"Complementing scale experiments of rivers and estuaries with numerically modelled hydrodynamics\"

Steven Alexander Hubertus Weisscher
This data set contains supplementary material and the raw data for the Esurf paper Weisscher et al (2020). The supplementary material includes four supplementary figures to the paper and a movie for visual comparison between measured and modelled flow. In addition, there is a supplementary manual that explains how to remodel the hydrodynamics of scale experiments (i.e., the iRIC manual). The raw data of the meandering and braided river scale experiments was collected by Van...

Mechanical data from rotary shear experiments on material derived from outcrops felsic and mafic rocks in the East African Rift Zone

Nina Hellebrekers
In all experiments, multiple series of velocity-steps were performed to obtain the velocity dependence of friction. The data can be modeled using rate-and-state friction equations (see Marone, 1998). We used the rate-and-state friction tool included in the XLOOK program to invert the data for all RSF parameters. For more details on the inversions scheme, see e.g. Reinen and Weeks, 1993. The excel-files included give the best fit values for the different parameters and different velocity...

Subjective and objective evaluations of horses for fit-to-compete or unfit-to-compete judgement.

Filipe. Serra Bragança, Harold Brommer & Marianne. Sloet Van Oldruitenborgh-Oosterbaan
At Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) competitions horses pass a veterinary inspection for judgement of ‘fit-to-compete’. However, FEI Veterinary Delegates (VDs) often differ in opinion. The aim of the present study was to evaluate intra- and inter-observer agreements of ‘fit-to-compete’ judgement and compare these with objective gait analysis measurements. Twelve horses were evaluated by three experienced VDs and one veterinary specialist and video-recorded for re-evaluation later. Simultaneously, quantitative gait analysis measurements (Qhorse®) were acquired. Inter-observer agreement...
