World Freedom Atlas

Here is a terrific resource: the World Freedom Atlas, a “geovisualization tool” — i.e., cool interactive map — for world statistics. It includes the most important variables used by economists including income and purchasing power from the Penn World Table, legal origin from LLSV, economic freedom from the Fraser Institute and the Heritage Foundation, policy constraints from Witold Henisz, the World Bank’s governance indicators, and a host of other variables from Acemoglu, Johnson and Robinson; Barro and Lee; Easterly and Levine; Persson and Tabellini; and several others. All that’s missing is links to the original datasets. Still, an impressive tool. (HT: Mike Kellermann)
