Child Rights INGO Membership Data

Minzee Kim has generously shared her child rights INGO membership data.  I quote from her description of the data:

“Country membership in core child rights INGO data come from the Yearbook of International Organizations (various years), which reports country memberships annually from 1982 and periodically from 1967. Using the 2006-2007 version, all organizations under the following seven relevant subjects were examined.

  1. Society/youth
  2. Society/infants
  3. Human Rights Organizations
  4. Humanitarian Orgaizations
  5. innovative change/Rights
  6. Social Activity/Welfare
  7. Society/Disadvantaged

595 child well-being related INGOs were indentified and 93 of those were identified as core child rights INGOs. Among the 93 core child rights INGOs, 53 had membership information. Based on the 53 child rights INGOs, country membership in child rights INGOs were constructed. County membership information in the 53 child rights INGOs were constructed using 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2000 and 2005 versions of the Yearbook of International Organizations.”

Minzee:  Thanks for your hard work and your willingness to share the data!
