Create panel data consisting of independent states from 1816 to the present. The package includes the Gleditsch & Ward (G&W) and Correlates of War (COW) lists of independent states, as well as helper functions for working with state panel data and standardizing other data sources to create country-year/month/etc. data.
plot_missingimprovements: examples with Polity data, added a
skip_labelsoption that will plot every n-th label for countries instead of all labels to avoid overplotting on the y-axis. The latter is inspired by https://github.com/xuyiqing/panelView.
gwstates$country_nameslike Cote d'Ivoire and Wüttemberg.
state_paneland add a partial option to allow including partial state-periods (as opposed to the default which is based on the exact start date, for all period resolutions in "by").
plot_missing: fix a bug that would leave out independent states with no cases in the input data; add
missing_infofunction that generates the data underlying the plots.
