Volker Gast's data repository

Welcome to one my personal data repository. On this page I provide the raw data for empirical research papers.

The data are provided for the purpose of inspection and replication. If you want to carry out analyses of your own, please refer to the relevant publication and acknowledge the data as well as the annotators.

The data files are stored in csv-format, with a backslash '\' separating the columns. For information about the data (variables, coding decisions etc.), please consult the relevant publications.

Instead of dowloading the data, you can also inspect them online with GraphInspect, if that option is available (cf. the rightmost column of the table). GraphInspect is currently password secured. Please contact me for login details.
