Tools for Researchers

SUNGEO addresses three persistent problems in sub-national research: mismatch between theoretical units of analysis and the scale of available data; the availability of multiple data sources for the same variables, which may be conflicting, overlapping or complementary; and a lack of generalizability of empirical results across alternative measurement strategies, or when using data from different sources and cases.

With SUNGEO you can develop highly customizable integrated data, standardize sub-national units of analysis across countries, employ built-in methods where multiple data sources exist, and evaluate the robustness and generalizability of their results to alternative data and measurement choices.

SUNGEO includes (1) a user-friendly web interface, where you can easily construct sub-national datasets from a large collection of archived data, and (2) an open-source software package so you can apply these tools to their own data, and produce a more customizable output based on individual specifications and needs.
