data

A UD dataset with a country_name, year, latent variable mean and latent variable standard deviation columns at least. Little sanity checking is performed - careful!

country1

The first country to compare.

country2

The second country to compare. Can be the same as country1

years

Either a single year, or a length 2 vector of years.

mean_col

The name of the column that contains the mean of the latent variable (defaults to z1)

sd_col

The name of the column that contains the standard error of the latent variable (defaults to se_z1)

country_col

The name of the column that contains the country name (defaults to extended_country_name)

year_col

The name of the column that contains the years (defaults to year)

Value

The probability that the first country-year in the comparison is more democratic than the second.
