QoG Expert Survey Data
The Quality of Government Institute at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, seeks to enhance research on quality of government -- how it is created and how it influences public policy. As part of this endeavor, during the 2014-2015 years the Institute was conducting a web survey of a global panel of experts on the quality of government in various countries.
