Replication Data for: Power, Ideas, and World Bank Conditionality



The texts of the loan conditions used as raw data for this article was supplied to us by the World Bank on a confidential basis. The replication data therefore only provides our aggregated data that reproduces all the results in the publication itself. To promote replicability and to promote future research on the World Bank and its lending practices, we have reproduced the confidential raw data to the fullest extent possible by relying only on publicly available information. The data set contains the project-specific conditions attached to 1242 World Bank loan and borrowing agreements. For each of these, the data set lists the project number, project year, borrower country ISO3C code, the date of the document, the abbreviated World Bank project name, the URL to the text or PDF document, and the texts of the loan-specific conditions. The latter were extracted through a combination of quantitative text analysis and reading of the actual loan agreement documents. This data covers all the observations used in the article, with the exception of 205 projects with their conditions that the World Bank has chosen to keep confidential. Nearly all of these are from the 1980s. We encourage future research using this data. If you undertake such work, please cite the article as source. (2022-02-04)
