Banks Cross-National Time-Series (CNTS) Data Archive
The Banks CNTS Data Archive is a very comprehensive collection of political, economic, and demographic variables, including regime type, legislative effectiveness, the nature of the executive, and cabinet size. Depending on the country and variable, the data go back to 1815. The CNTS data are available to current Emory faculty/students/staff upon request. To access the data, please contact Dr. Robert O'Reilly.

Neighborhood Change Data Base
The Neighborhood Change Data Base contains data from the 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000, and 2010 censuses and allows users to convert data from pre-2010 censuses into 2010 census tracts to show demographic and economic changes over time in given areas.
