General notes As votes of No Confidence we have recorded only those votes that have been directed at the PM and the cabinet as a whole, not those directed at an individual only. In previous work, D&A 2003, we applied a very strict crow-national counting rule. However, in this table the definition of a motion of confidence is based on a country specific counting rule.

General notes The party listed first under each incomplete bargaining round has been designated as the driving force at each occasion. This often involves a difficult judgement call, but we have to the best of our ability designated this role on the basis of available sources. Party Labels: See table Sweden I. Specific notes 1) Informal bargaining between SD and Centre. Estimated number of days (Erlander 1974:264-84) 2) The first cabinet formation under the constitution which went into effect The 1975 constitution requires a vote to be held before a new cabinet can assume power. However, after a general election, if a cabinet does not resign, or is not forced to resign, it simply continues in power. No vote is held in the Riksdag. Because of the constitutional rule that a cabinet does not have to resign until the PM resigns or it is defeated in parliament, the incumbent party composition and the same PM continue in power even though there can be parallel (but ultimately incomplete) bargaining rounds attempting at forming an alternative coalition. This occurred both in 1948 and in 2002.

Sveriges nya regering. Riksdag & Departement. October 09 General notes All of the calculations presented in this section are based on a dataset which contains data on s that get their portfolios at the beginning of a new cabinet only. A new cabinet is here defined as a cabinet that fulfill at least one of three conditions; any change in the set of parties holding cabinet membership, any change in the identity of the prime or any general election (see Müller and Strøm 2003:12). With this definition twelve intra cabinet reshuffles, six Swedish finance s, three s of foreign affairs and three justice s, are left out of the sample. The table shows the number of cabinets in which the served in that position. Prior parliamentary experience (in full years) does not include the years that a person has been in cabinet. That is, for systems that allow for the holding of simultaneous cabinet and parliamentary positions, we only count parliamentary experience for the years that the MP does not also has a cabinet position. (The latter is coded as prior cabinet experience: Yes or No). If the total parliamentary experience (service as MP) sums to less than six months, we count that as zero (0) years of experience. Prior party high rank position = Any of the following: party leader, party secretary, member of the party national board or head of local or regional board. Prior youth party high rank position = The corresponding merits as in Prior party high rank position (youth organization).
13 Major prior appointment within parliament = Any of the following: Speaker (President of Parliament or chamber/sub-division), group leader, vice group leader, committee chairman or vice committee chairman. Major prior elected offices at local/regional level = Any of the following: head of municipality, head of region, member of local or regional elected assembly. Formal education level: 1 = Primary (or less), 2 = Secondary (high school, Swedish gymnasium), 3 = any enrollment in post-secondary education (such as technical college, nurse school, college, university) but no degree, 4 = Any undergraduate degree at technical college, nurse school, college or university (2-4 years in length) that is post-high school or gymnasium, 5 = Post graduate degree (licensiat, huvudfag, Ph.D) Prior employment refers to the employer, that is to say the one paying the salary. Salary by the party does not include elected offices, only jobs (such as a party ombudsman). The three categories (public, private, party) are not mutually excluding categories (as they in combination speak to a 's general career pattern). Private employment includes people employed in trade-unions and other non-governmental organizations. The coding, "Member of Parliament at the time of appointment" only has one possible answer (yes or no). The category (column): "Prior employment before Member of Parliament (MP) or " is an open coding. It describes the job that the had when he/she first became a or an MP (whichever came first), in English. Finance is defined as the heading the ministry in control of the state budget. Justice is defined as the heading the ministry in control of the police force. Party labels: See table Sweden I. Specific notes 1) The Social Democrats has traditionally had tight bounds with the blue-collar trade union LO. Despite this only one of the Social Democratic s in this analysis has had a top position within LO or one of its member organizations. Finance Gunnar Sträng was chairman of the farm workers trade union (Svenska Lantarbetarförbundet)

On a number of occasions, one or more parties in the parliament have passively supported the budget of the cabinet. Hence, these occasions are not included in this table. By explicit cooperation, we mean regular negotiations between representatives of the parties, not smaller agreements in the parliamentary committees resulting in abstained votes or suchlike. Some of the negotiations have also resulted in written agreements, e.g. the agreement between the Social Democrats, the Greens and the Left party after the election 2002 (121 point programme). Year: Until January 1995, the Swedish budget period lasted from June till July the next coming year. Thus the figures for the year up to 1996 represents the second half of that year and the first half of the subsequent year. E.g., the cooperation between the Social Democrats and the Communists in 1985, refers to their accommodation for the budget 1985/86. Starting in 1996, the budget follows the calendar year. A accommodation in 1996 refers to the budget of 1997, and so on. Party labels: See table Sweden I Specific notes 1) The cabinet originally included the Conservatives. However, during the spring 1981, the two other coalition parties joined an agreement over fiscal policy with the Social Democrats. Since the Conservatives could not accept this deal, they in protest left the cabinet the 4 th of May ) Communist: Former name of present Left party
