This site assists you to work with Quality of Government Institute (QOG) data. The original pdf-codebooks are a bit cumbersome to work with.

From the Codebooks menu you can browse and download metadata files for each dataset. Data availability menu has massive html pages for each dataset with a plot for each indicator showing data availability over time for each country.

See rqog-package for direct downloads of QOG data into R and tidymetadata-package for extracting metadata from spss/stata files.

Mail me if any questions!
