Below are files for replicating or extending results in the paper ``All Alliances are Multilateral'' (w/ Benjamin Fordham). We thank Daina Chiba (Essex), whose effort to replicate our work uncovered the difficulties scholars face (myself included!) when creating k-adic data and, therefore, led to this webpage as a help to future scholarship.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
This zip folder contains Stata files for creating k-adic data using the ATOP dataset. Since the creation and use of k-adic is an ongoing research project, I am always finding better ways to write procedures for creating k-adic data. Therefore, the files in the folder are improvements over the files used to create the k-adic data in the original paper. The dataset produced by these files will generate the same inverted U-shaped relationship between capabilities and the probability of alliance formation found in Figure 1 of the paper.
This Stata do file reproduces Figure 1.
