Abstract

We present a new instrument to measure the scope of the delegation of decree power to the president (DAD). The two variants of this index provide objective and replicable metrics to measure DDA scopes and allow cross-time and cross-sectional comparisons. These indexes will enable further studies on the presidents' legislative powers. Finally, we use these indexes to code Argentine, Peruvian and Venezuelan dda between 1961 and 2011.
