September 9, 2009 — In response to growing demand, The Asia Foundation will make the raw firm-level survey data from its Vietnam (2006-2008), Cambodia (2006 and 2008) and Indonesia (2007) Economic Governance Indexes (EGI) available to the public upon request, along with their accompanying survey instruments, user guides, and codebooks.
As the primary data source for The Foundation’s EGIs, these surveys collect information about local government regulations and how they impact private sector development. The data contain valuable information that will help expand research and analysis in the areas of good governance, growth, and private sector development.
The data also provides relevant economic governance information to policymakers, business leaders, and citizens. This information creates demand for an improved business environment among the private sector and provides local and national leaders with information about best practices as they seek to improve economic policies.
To request the data or for more information, visit The Asia Foundation’s Economic Governance Index page or contact Nina Merchant, Assistant Director, Economic Reform & Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
