INGO Network Country Scores (INCS), 1950-2008

These data provide a measure of country-level connectedness to the world polity called INCS. The measure scores countries by centrality in the world country-INGO network, rather than on raw counts of INGO ties that do not acknowledge networks or power. Data span 5,291 INGOs. Both raw and scaled scores are provided.
