Intergovernmental Organizations Weights Data Set

The purpose of this project was to develop a weighting system for intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), which measures the relative prominence of the 405 organizations within our IGO dataset (Jonathan Moyer and Sara Turner 2014), in in order to compare the relative importance of membership within each organization. The weighted membership score will provide the ability to identify countries that are more or less embedded in specific organizations and measure the importance of the organizations within different issue areas. The weights will also be used the calculated shared dyadic IGO affinity, the total weight of all shared IGOs between two countries.
