[Download the data appendix]
The internet appendix for our working paper "The Life Cycle of Family Ownership: International Evidence" (with Colin Mayer, Julian Franks and Paolo Volpin) describes in detail how the TOP 4,000, the FAMILY LISTED and the ALL FIRM samples are constructed from AMADEUS and other sources. It also shows a detailed breakdown of the corrections we make to the data in Faccio and Lang (2002), JFE.
