Estimated Posteriors for Each Possible Response Pattern_Customer Relations
Contains estimates of the posterior probability of using each of the discovered governance structures for the full spectrum of possible response patterns. With six questions, each with five categories of responses, there are 15,625 possible response patterns. The ES respondents use far fewer than this. For relations with customers, we observe 631. This data set thus enables other researchers to use their own survey data and obtain posterior probabilities for their observed patterns of responses.

Estimated Posteriors for Each Possible Response Pattern_Supplier Relations
Contains estimates of the posterior probability of using each of the discovered governance structures for the full spectrum of possible response patterns. With six questions, each with five categories of responses, there are 15,625 possible response patterns. The ES respondents use far fewer than this. For relations with suppliers, we observe 711 distinct combinations of answers. This data file thus enables other researchers to use their own survey data and obtain posterior probabilities for their observed patterns of responses.

Landscape of Transactions_Data on Customer Relations
The data set contains: (i) the survey responses to the corresponding series of questions, (ii) estimates produced by Latent GOLD of the posterior probability that each firm uses each of the discovered governance structures, and (iii) the unique identifier that enables onetoone matching of each firm with the full ES data (variable idstd), along with the country identifier, sampling weights, and the stratum of each firm.
