The Affinity of Nations:  Similarity of State Voting Positions in the UNGA

The Affinity of Nations index provides a metric that reflects the similarity of state preferences based on voting positions of pairs of countries (dyads) in the United Nations General Assembly.  The index is calculated using "S".  Affinity is similar to Bueno de Mesquita's tB, which can be downloaded and generated using Bennett and Stam's EUGene.  Affinity offers more information (variance) that the tB  index, and may also be less biased.
