We base our analysis on the Rose (2004) data set,5 although we will also use the Tomz et al. (2007) data set in Section 5.2 as one of the robustness checks. Readers are referred to the source for a detailed account of the data. The data set includes 234,597 observations on trade flows among 178 IMF trading entities between 1948 and 1999 (with some “gaps” and missing observations). There are 12,150 distinct dyads and, on average, about 19 observations for each dyad. The list of variables and their definitions can be found in the published paper.
