ONBound - Harmonization Wizard

Back to ONBound webpage

The ONBound - Harmonization Wizard is used for compiling a customized dataset on national identity, religious identity and additional variables supporting the analysis of these two spheres. The ONBound-project offers syntax-files that create a cumulated and harmonized dataset containing micro- and macro-level data from a vast array of source datasets for SPSS and Stata. The ONBound-Harmonization Wizard allows the selection of micro- and macro-level variables as well as countries. Micro-level variables are grouped by topics, whereas macro-level variables are organized by the original datasets. After the selection, the Wizard compiles a customized .zip-folder. This folder contains the whole documentation package, all syntax-files and a customized main syntax-file that embodies the heart of the harmonization process. Before running this customized file, that creates the final dataset containing all selected variables for the selected countries, users must download the original source datasets. At the end of the process, a customized list with links to the original datasets will be provided. Before using the ONBound-Harmonization Wizard, please refer to the information and documents on our Website ONBound. The documents will help to pre-select topics, countries and possibly source datasets.

Following steps must be carried out:

  1. Select variable topics (micro-level) and thematic datasets (macro-level)
  2. Select countries
  3. Deselect (if you like) topics based on the topic-country matrix providing information on the availability of variables by topics and year coverage for the selection
  4. Download the onbound.zip-folder, either containing Stata or SPSS files, for preparing the customized ONBound dataset
  5. Download original datasets from their repositories

In this section, you can select the topics you are interested in. Variables are sorted by topics. You can only select topics and not single variables. Whether the variables you are specifically interested in are available for chosen countries, is displayed in the Summary of selection section. Background and protocol variables, e.g. gender of respondents, age and weights are automatically included.

Please Note: Selecting all implies a very large dataset which your computer might struggle to handle. We therefore recommend to carefully select the topics and macro-level datasets you want to include.

Indicators of Citizenship Rights for Immigrants

The project is based on original data drawn from policy documents, legal texts, secondary literature, internet websites, and expert information. The qualitative information from these sources is transformed into ordinal codes, classifying policies as more or less restrictive in terms of the extent and accessibility of rights for immigrants. Temporal trends in the means (as a measure of liberalisation) and cross-national standard deviations (as a measure of convergence) of policies are related by way of bivariate and multivariate regression analyses to explanatory variables such as EU membership, the strength and scope of judicial review, government incumbency of left-wing parties, and the electoral strength of right-wing populist parties. In the first phase of the project data have been gathered for ten North-Western European countries for four measurement years: 1980, 1990, 2002 and 2008. In a second phase, data was collected for four classical Anglo-Saxon settler countries as well as for additional Eastern and Southern European countries, Middle Eastern, East Asian, African and South American countries. As a result, data is now available for 29 countries for the year 2008.

The IMPIC Project: Immigration Policies in Comparison

Over the last two decades both immigration politics and research on immigration issues have become very important. So far, there is however no dataset that would allow researchers to systematically investigate immigration policies across a large sample of countries. The aim of the Immigration Policies in Comparison (IMPIC) project is therefore to provide a set of sophisticated quantitative indices to measure immigration policies in all OECD countries and for the time period 1980-2010. By means of this new dataset the causes and effects of immigration policies will be studied more systematically.

Includes Variables on:

  • POLICIES: POLICY SETTINGS: IMMIGRATION: Family Reunion, Labor Market, Asylum, Co-Ethnics, Control of Immigration

Religious Characteristics of States Dataset Project, Demographics

The RCS-Dem dataset reports estimates of religious demographics, both country by country and region by region. RCS was created to fulfill the unmet need for a dataset on the religious dimensions of countries of the world, with the state-year as the unit of observation. It covers 220 independent states, 26 selected substate entities, and 41 geographically separated dependencies, for every year from 2015 back to 1900 and often 1800 (more than 42,000 state-years). It estimates populations and percentages of adherents of 100 religious denominations including second level subdivisions within Christianity and Islam, along with several complex categories such as 'Western Christianity'. RCS is designed for easy merger with datasets of the Correlates of War and Polity projects, datasets by the United Nations, the Religion and State datasets by Jonathan Fox, and the ARDA national profiles. (ARDA)

Religious Diversity Index

This study calculates Religious Diversity Index (RDI) scores for countries, regions and the world based on the shares of eight major world religions (Buddhism, Christianity, folk or traditional religions, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, other religions considered as a group, and the religiously unaffiliated). The methodology used by Pew Research to calculate the levels of religious diversity was developed by former senior researcher Brian J. Grim in consultation with other members of the Pew Research Center staff, building on a methodology that Grim developed with Todd M. Johnson, director of the Center for the Study of Global Christianity.

The United Nations Statistics Division collects, compiles and disseminates official demographic and social statistics on a wide range of topics. Data have been collected since 1948 through a set of questionnaires dispatched annually to over 230 national statistical offices and have been published in the Demographic Yearbook collection. The Demographic Yearbook disseminates statistics on population size and composition, births, deaths, marriage and divorce, as well as respective rates, on an annual basis. The Demographic Yearbook census datasets cover a wide range of additional topics including economic activity, educational attainment, household characteristics, housing characteristics, ethnicity, language, foreign-born and foreign population. The available Population and Housing Censuses´ datasets reported to UNSD for the censuses conducted worldwide since 1995, are now available in UN data.

World Religion Project - National Religion Dataset

The World Religion Project (WRP) aims to provide detailed information about religious adherence worldwide since 1945. It contains data about the number of adherents by religion in each of the states in the international system. These numbers are given for every half-decade period (1945, 1950, etc., through 2010). Percentages of the states' populations that practice a given religion are also provided.

Includes Variables on:

  • CIVIL SOCIETY: POPULATION: BASIC POPULATION FIGURES: General
  • CIVIL SOCIETY: DIVERSITY: RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY: Distribution of Religious Denomination

Main Variable Topics:

  • CIVIL SOCIETY: POPULATION: BASIC POPULATION FIGURES

In this section, countries can be selected.

The ONBound project offers macro-level data with a time scope ranging between 1945 and 2019. Micro-level data ranges between 1970 and 2018. Countries that experienced changes due to unification or separation processes are sometimes differently handled by source datasets. As result, we included a unique coding scheme to do justice to this different handling. When selecting countries, please keep two things in mind: First, selecting some countries might imply the selection of sub-national regions, e.g. Germany East and Germany West. Second, as consequence of this coding scheme, countries are grouped in accordance to their former entities (which depends on the time of data collection).
