This data collection contains information about selected interactions between major powers, such as the United States, the former Soviet Union, the People's Republic of China, and Eastern European countries, and less developed countries for the years 1959, 1961, 1963, and 1965. The variables measuring the interactions include indicators of economic, political, and educational influence of the major powers on the less developed countries, such as the proportions of exports to and imports from the major powers, economic aid received from the major powers, the number of students from the less developed countries enrolled in educational institutions of the more developed countries, diplomatic recognition extended to the major powers by the less developed countries, news services of the major powers in the less developed countries, and the relative geographic distance between each of the less developed countries and the more developed countries. Also included are variables describing characteristics of the less developed countries, such as population and description of the Communist Party in each country. Additional variables provide information on the date of admission of each country to the United Nations, the degree of freedom of the press, and Communist Party membership.
