This site assists you to work with Quality of Government Institute (QOG) data. The original pdf-codebooks are a bit cumbersome to work with. All data is based on datasets published in January 2021

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.
