Abstract: 
In order to study the effect of sector-specific regulation on industry behavior and market outcome, regulatory density must be measured. The Polynomics Telecommunication Regulation Index 2012 aims to provide such a measure for telecommunications. It is based on coded answers to almost 30 questions regarding sector specific regulations. All questions were selected by the criterion that they potentially relate to investment and innovation activity by telecommunication companies. Each question either concerns fixed network, the mobile network and/or NGA networks or multiple networks. This procedure results in more than 40 regulatory indicators per country and year. The indicators are evaluated and gathered for 32 countries (EU-27, Australia, Japan, Switzerland, Singapore, USA) for a period of 14 years (1997 until 2010). Based on the regulatory indicators various sub-indices and indices can be constructed. The data set is available from Polynomics upon request. Visit http://www.polynomics.ch/rdi.
