    Hi Esmet, not sure I quite follow what you want, however, perhaps an additional tool to use would be the Online Appendix, which has a table of each source, and a link to the website data of each source. The Online Appendix can be found above (in a Word document).

      Hi Esmet, all the information on putting together the indicators are contained in the paper. Unfortunately, I’m afraid I really don’t have time at the moment to work on this.

      The information on how to do this is contained in the paper. But no, you need to have data for all (available) countries to extend this past 2010, because each indicator is first normalised (0-100 scale), then standardised with respect to the base year of 1980. Using the raw numbers for a single country therefore won’t work.

    Mr. Andrew williams if I want to examine the impact of transparency on the growth of the country iran, can I use an index that you have calculated? Or that the results are not credit?Or similar to your research, be considered in all countries (available) together, the results are worthwhile?(Personally, I do not calculate the index, the index has been calculated in your research،I use to evaluate the effect of transparency on economic growth in Iran)

    If you want, you could use the Release of Information index (also available on my website here). You can use either of these for an individual country across time, that is fine. Or, try the HRV Index from Hollyer et al, which they have recently released. It is similar to the Release of Information index.
