Ethnoregional and Electorally Relevant Ethnoregional Diversity Measures is an MS Excel Workbook with information on two types of ethnoregional diversity measures for 114 countries. The first type is based on the inclusion of all groups. The second includes only electorally relevant ethnoregional groups (EREG). See Minority Rules for more detailed information. The measures are also used in articles listed below and on my CV (link above).

Election Passport has results from legislative elections in over 90 countries around the world from Albania to Zimbabwe. It also details the operation of electoral systems for a variety of countries. Election Passport has now joined forces with the Constituency-Level Election Archive (CLEA) in an effort to make more results available in a uniform format from a single source, though I continue to post election results on Election Passport in advance of its incorporation into CLEA.
