The European Representative Democracy data archive consists of cabinet-level data for 29 European democracies in post-WWII Europe. For each country it includes data for the cabinets that have formed after the introduction of the current democratic regime of parliamentary democracy (for Cyprus representative democracy). Included are cabinets that have formed before or on December 31 2010. In this release (3.0) we have completed the information on those cabinets up through December 2013. Altogether, a total of 640 cabinets–coalitions, single party and non-partisan–are included.
