#' Add Correlates of War major power information to a data frame
#'
#' @description \code{add_cow_majors()} allows you to add Correlates of War major power variables
#' to a dyad-year, leader-year, leader dyad-year, or state-year data frame.
#'
#'
#' @return \code{add_cow_majors()} takes a data frame and adds information
#' about major power status for the given state or dyad in that year. If the
#' data are dyad-year (or leader dyad-year), the function returns two
#' columns for whether the first state (i.e. \code{ccode1}) or the second
#' state (i.e. \code{ccode2}) are major powers in the given year, according
#' to the Correlates of War. 1 = is a major power. 0 = is not a major
#' power. If the data are state-year (or leader-year), the functions
#' returns just one column (\code{cowmaj}) for whether the
#' state was a major power in a given state-year.
#'
#'
#' @details
#'
#' Be mindful that the data are fundamentally state-year and that extensions to leader-level data should be understood
#' as approximations for leaders in a given state-year.
