Complementary Databases
LIS hosts a collection of databases with country-level indicators. These databases have been prepared by various LIS staff members, data users, and Visiting Scholars. They are designed to be used alone or in conjunction with LIS microdata. The country-level indicators contained in these databases are widely used by researchers seeking to link policy/institutional variables to micro-level outcomes.
