Socio-Economic Interest Groups in Spain

All trade unions, professional associations and employers’ associations in Spain are required by law to submit their organizational statutes to the Spanish Ministry of Employment and Social Affairs. Using a directory of all organizations that have done this since Spanish democratization in 1975, I together with Alex Roth coded a dataset of association characteristics, including which ones that remained active as of 2017. The dataset also includes social policy groups focusing mainly on domestic policy, attained from the Spanish Foreign Ministry's directory of domestic NGOs (n ≩ 5902).
