Quantitative Methods for Studying Elites: Demonstration for R

This repository contains demonstrations for R of generalised linear models and proportional hazards Cox regressions to measure the impact of individual business trajectories on the access and permanence in political positions in the Chilean executive and legislative branches. These demonstrations are the primary analysis of the forthcoming methodological article entitled "Métodos cuantitativos para estudiar a las élites: Aplicaciones prácticas, sesgos y potencialidades".

In addition, it contains an anonymised, sliced data set from the Chilean Elite Survey (1990-2010) (N = 386) in Comma-Separated Values (CSV) format with Unicode encoding (UTF-8) based on the latest update by Joignant and González-Bustamante (2014). The second data set used in the demonstrations is González-Bustamante and Olivares (2022).
