Autocratic Regime Data

In light of my previous post, I found this Autocratic Dataset from Barbara Geddes and Joseph Wright. The data was amassed meticulously as they constructed the different nature of autocratic regimes. This new measurement of autocracy, which sometimes used interchangeably with authoritarian, could advance future research avenue on autocratic durability and unfold many other interesting questions. For comparison, you may want to look at the binary regime data and Przeworski et al political and economic dataset.
