The Spirit Level data

The international data and USA states data used in our analysis is from publicly available sources.

Professors Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson compiled a spreadsheet of these two datasets used in the analyses discussed in The Spirit Level, and for which we give correlation and probability values on this website.

To access the international data and USA states data, please complete the form below.

You will then be redirected to a page where it can be downloaded.

In recognition of the time Professors Pickett and Wilkinson have spent compiling this spreadsheets, we would be very grateful for voluntary donations to The Equality Trust. We can only continue our work because of the generous contributions we receive from our individual and trust supporters. Typical donations received for the datasets are between £5-£50. 

Alternatively, to access the data without making a donation, please simply email jo.wittams@equalitytrust.org.uk with the subject 'International Dataset' and she will be happy to send it to you.

If you have any questions or experience any problems, please contact jo.wittams@equalitytrust.org.uk
