D’Erman, Valerie J.; Haas, Jörg; Schulz, Daniel F.; Verdun, Amy, 2021, “EUROSEM CSR Dataset”, https://doi.org/10.5683/SP2/CYRZHE, Borealis: The Canadian Dataverse Repository, V1

The EUROSEM CSR Dataset was created as a part of the Jean Monnet Network EUROSEM: ‘The Politics of the European Semester’ at the University of Victoria’s Department of Political Science (2018-2022). It provides researchers with data on all country-specific recommendations (CSR) put forward by the European Commission in the European Semester. For the dataset, all CSRs to member states of the euro area from 2012 to 2019 have been considered. The data has been manually coded by a group of researchers familiar with language used in official EU publications. Each country has been assigned to two coders who reviewed and coded the CSRs independently. Their codings have been controlled for intercoder reliability. In total, 1875 CSRs are included in the dataset: 517 ‘headline CSRs’ that include the general policy guidance by the European Commission in a broad policy area for the country in question, as well as 1268 ‘sub-CSRs’ which focus on targeted elements of the broader guidance. The EUROSEM CSR Dataset was created with support of the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union.
