- The Government Religious Preference dataset (GRP) measures government-level favoritism toward, and disfavor against, 30 religious denominations. The unit of observation is the state-year. A series of ordered categorical variables index the state's institutional favoritism in 28 different ways. Those 28 variables are combined to form five composite indices for five broad components of state-religion: official status, religious education, financial support, regulatory burdens, and freedom of practice. The five components' composites in turn are further combined into a single composite score, the GRP score. All of this is done for each of the 30 religious denominations covered in the dataset. The total number of data points is approximately 42 million, distributed in six data files. Version 2.0 expands the dataset considerably from the original version. Version 2.0 draws from many more primary and secondary sources. It covers all independent states that are included in the Correlates of War state system. Its temporal coverage ranges from 2015 back to the year of the state's independence or about 1800, whichever is later. The precise years of coverage for each state is detailed in the Codebook, Appendix A. Each variable-level data point is documented with a Coding Event number to enable users to identify the source used to populate the variable. This dataset is the sixth of six files. It contains the Government Religious Preference Free Exercise.
