description:
The data set consists of all resolutions passed by the United Nations General Assembly in their regular sessions from 1946 to 2014 (some from the calendar year 2015 are also included). The data is based on the summary tables on the UN website (accessible via http://www.un.org/documents/resga.htm). The tables were retrieved on 16 September 2015 and the data was automatically extracted using a Python script. The data set consists of 17,359 observations. A number of typos and missing pieces of information was added (see below). The date was transferred into a uniform format. Several checks for consistency were performed (see Python script for details). One resolution number was not assigned (A/RES/50/125), another bloc of numbers is also missing from the UN website (A/RES/56/500 – 300). Please consult the following for more information regarding the original data: http://research.un.org/en/docs/resolutions http://www.unitar.org/ny/sites/unitar.org.ny/files/UN_PGA_Handbook.pdf The data is available as a delimited text file (delimiter: semicolon) and as a Stata (14) data file (all variables are coded as strings). Missing values are denoted by “Missing”.
