Supplement to "Democracy, Redistribution, and Political Participation: Evidence from Sweden 1919-1938"

In this web appendix we present the results from a number of specification checks regarding bandwidths and order of polynomial (Section A1), imposing the same slope on both sides of the RD threshold (Section A2), expressing the outcome (welfare spending per capita in logarithmic form) in levels (Section A3) and as a total (Section A4), using collapsed data (Section A5), graphical evidence of any discontinuities in pre-treatment characteristics at the threshold (Section A6), and histograms over the forcing variables (Section A7).
