Historical Cabinets (H-CAB)


The Historical Cabinets (H-CAB) dataset is an historical extension of the Party Government in Europe Database (PAGED) and covers cabinets formed between 1919-1945 in 12 European countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Netherland, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom). In addition, new data for France was also collected for the period 1945-1958, covering the Fourth Republic which is not included in PAGED. The H-CAB dataset provides data on dates of cabinet formation and dissolution, along with data on the cabinet party composition, allowing for analysis on cabinet formation and duration during the interwar period.

The full codebook is available here.
