This data file contains a total of 43 variables including a wide range of topics such as electoral institutional, party system, regime type and socio economic information. The objective of all this effort is to provide additional systematized contextual data for researchers who wish to perform multilevel analysis of CSES survey data. CSES Module 1 and 2 databases already contain a great deal of macro level variables, but focus mainly on institutional aspects. The data included here have some basic institutional features that may overlap with the CSES database, but also include some new types of variables on party systems, regime types and socioeconomic indicators.

The June 2007 version of the file includes all of the election studies appearing in CSES Module 1, and the 32 election studies appearing in the fourth advance release of CSES Module 2.

The CSES Portuguese team spent a significant amount of time organizing a booklet that expands on the macro information available for CSES Module 1 and CSES Module 2. The team contacted CSES collaborators in order to fill in missing data and obtain clarification on a variety of items. The available information was systematized in several tables. The resulting booklet divides the information into three parts (regime types, electoral systems, and political parties) and includes an index.

Due to limited resources, work on the booklet ceased in July 2005. The contributors encourage anyone who is interested in doing so to complete the file, so long as the Portuguese team is credited for their efforts in any resulting product.
