A data set on banking, currency, debt, and debt-restructuring crises from 1970 to 2017.
A data frame with 574 observations on the following 4 variables.
the country, as it appears in the data
the type of crisis, entered here as "banking", "currency", "debt", or "debtrestructuring"
the year of the crisis
the month the crisis started, if known
Data are cobbled from the second and third sheets of the spreadsheet the authors provide. Country names are as entered in their spreadsheet. Liberia has an "NA" in the raw data for sovereign debt restructuring and I don't know why. I elect to keep it.
