This is the data set for Working Paper 361 in which Kalifi Ferretti-Gallon and Jonah Busch compile a comprehensive database of 117 spatially explicit econometric studies of deforestation published in peer-reviewed academic journals from 1996-2013 and present a meta-analysis based on the signs and significances of 5909 coefficients in 554 multivariate analyses with the aim of understanding what factors drive deforestation and what policies can effectively stop it.
