About this datasetThis file has multiple sheets with data for one or more indicators used by Gapminder. In this sheet below you'll first find an overview of the indicators (measures) and the list of underlying sources. The actual data we use, is found in the sheet(s) labeled "data-...".
This file is also a documentation of the data process. To follow how the data was transformed from the original sources, start in the sheet to the far right, which holds the input data. You can then follow the process step by step, by looking at the formulas in the sheets from right to left, until you reach the output in the "data-..." sheets.

Summary:Determining what is democracy is not a clear cut. We use the definition from the Economist Intelligence Únit (EIU), of 60% or higher score on Democracy index, which includes their two categories "Full democracy" and "Flawed democracy". The data from 2006 and later comes from the EIU. Data before 2006 are based on the trend form World in Data, based mainly on POLITY-IV definition, which is a bit more generous and puts the share of people in democracy on 55% in 2015. To fit the definition of EIU, we multiplied the historic OWID numbers with a rate 0.895, to adjust the historic curve so that it hit the number of EIU in 2006. This is a quick way to calculate a curve that both conveys the long historic development while fitting the higher quality data of the more recent decades.

Use the Economist's Democracy Index as a criteria for democracy (index > 60%), which made the total number of people in democracies, 5% lower compared to version 1. By adjusting the OWID curve to hit the EIU curve in the overlapping year 2006, we get a long historic curve that includes better data for the last 10 years, better illustrating the decline of democracy in many countries.

FormulasThe formulas in this workbook may be referring to other spreadsheets online, by their named ranges, and not by sheet names. If a spreadsheet is broken in the tree of formulas, we avoid other formulas to get broken, by always linking to the output data sheets, which are manually copied and pasted form the formula outputs in the sheets to the right of DATA_PREP sheet.
