The Transnational NGO Initiative is proud to announce the public release of its core dataset based on extensive interviews with top leaders from a diverse sample of 152 transnational NGOs. The dataset is derived from over 200 hours of digitally recorded interviews with top leaders, whose responses generated over 19,000 qualitative quotations captured with more than 400 qualitative codes. With additional secondary data from Charity Navigator, organizations’ Forms 990, websites and annual reports, the core dataset contains over 300 variables describing how TNGO leaders understand issues related to governance, goals and strategies, transnationalism, effectiveness, accountability, leadership and more. The TNGO core dataset offers an unprecedented glimpse into the perceptions and perspectives of TNGO leaders.
The Transnational NGO Initiative would like to foster a community of researchers interested in studying TNGOs and their leaders. We hope that the core dataset will help catalyze further TNGO research. To obtain the dataset, please follow the instructions to submit a request. The dataset is available in Stata, SPSS and Excel formats. Optional scripts run in Stata.
