European Government statistics 1918-2005 (to be updated!)
___________________________________________________________________

To each status one can add specific details such as electoral system, parliamentarian structure(uni, bicameral), process(discussion, committee), state form(i.e Unitarian, Federal state), Government decision process, ministry/agency structure and party structure, military structure etc.
These are however not factors that generally affects the actual status and relation between the political institutions. Still comparative data can be of much interest.


Furthermore there can be added external factors of interest such as GDP development within the status(time period), life quality indexes such as birth mortality, life expectancy et c. Economic freedom, proportion of public sector and so on.

Related statistics found on external websites.
