Abstract: This article describes the Searle Center Database on Technology Standards and Standard Setting Organizations (SSO). This is the first large scale database with information on technology standards, SSO membership and SSO characteristics that is designed for economic research.

Using the Internet Archives, the database tracks both institutional membership and the SSO rules and procedures over time since the inception of the Archives in 1996.
