The ICRG Researcher Dataset provides annual averages of the components of ICRG's political, financial, and economic risk ratings for individual countries. Dataset access is restricted to Tri-College Libraries faculty, students, and staff only. These files are available for research and educational use and are not to be used for commercial purposes.
The ICRG (International Country Risk Guide) Researcher Dataset from the Political Risk Services (PRS) Group comprises 22 variables forecasting three subcategories of risk (political, financial, and economic), for 146 countries, since 1984. Political, financial and economic data are collected and converted into risk ratings for each variable. The dataset provides annual averages of the components of the ICRG Risk Ratings published in the International Country Risk Guide.
