Additional information The first data file (ref 16377) contains the detailed description of the cases used in the qualitative comparative analysis in Viallon, Schweizer and Varone (2019). The cases stem from one of the author's PhD (Viallon 2017:111-200). Each synthesis is structured according to the following elements: 1.The local policy problem faced by authorities, and a brief description of the historical-geographical context; 2. The actor configuration (based on Knoepfel et al. (2011)): a) The political-administrative authorities that implement land use policy objectives: cantonal and communal administrations, cantonal and communal executive and legislative bodies, and their respective administrations (if applicable); b) The target group subject to regulation, either landowners or developers; c) Third parties involved: among those who benefit from the behavioural change of target groups: planners, real estate experts, lawyers, geometers, and other counselling persons or organizations contracted by authorities or target groups; among the negatively affected parties, one can find neighbours, other rights owners, and persons or organizations that indirectly suffer from the behavioural change of the target group. The presence of third parties depends on the case considered. d) End beneficiaries: the group who benefits from the behaviour change adopted by the target group. In the syntheses, they are not systematically mentioned, when, for example, they are not present in the negotiation process, or do not play a relevant role in relation to the policy problem considered in the case; 3. The strategies chosen by the involved actors, the instruments and policy resources they mobilized4. The local regulatory arrangement that results from the implementation process. The LRA compares the output of the process with the institutional regime and land use policy objectives. The second data file (ref 16379) provides a summary of the cases prior to their coding. A commented truth table can be found in Viallon (submitted). The truth table can be found in the research article by Viallon, Schweizer, Varone (2019). The third data file (ref 16378) contains an overview on the Swiss Institutional Soil Regime. It shows the legal changes in the property rights system and public policies related to the resource soil. This data is based on the PhD of Stéphane Nahrath (http://doc.rero.ch/record/501) and on the PhD of François-Xavier Viallon (https://serval.unil.ch/resource/serval:BIB_E738FB9AFB2A.P001/REF).

Data completeness Three cases out of 15 were dropped for the analysis, because local authorities themselves circumvented legislation. They figure in the original PhD thesis of the author (https://serval.unil.ch/resource/serval:BIB_E738FB9AFB2A.P001/REF).
