###Analysis of World Governance Indicators ####This repo contains data from World Governance Indicators (WGI) as well as R code for manipulating, visualizing, and analyzing the data. More information on WGI can be found here


Data:

An Excel speadsheeting containing values for all six WGI indicators for 1996-2012 for all countries of the world is available for download at the link above. For convenience six CSV files - on for each indicator - are posted here. The R code reads and manipulates these CSV files.


Code:

Three R script files are posted:

####1-wgi.data.R - Reads the six CSVs and generates a data frame with the estimates of each of the six indicators for each country for the year 2012. Generates a scatter plot matrix for a quick look at the data. ####2-wgi.corrplot.R - Generates a correlation matrix of the six indicators from the data frame created in the previous script. ####3-wgi.splom.R - Generates a fancier scatter plot matrix of the six indicators.

Note: These scripts should be sourced into R in the same order as they are described.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
