View Full Version : Conflict dataset

10-28-2010, 11:14 AM
Does anyone know of any data set other than the polity index and the banks data set that i can use to find extra conflict variables on (whether they be dummies or even an index). Or even a paper that may include that dataset and its source? I would appreciated any help anyone could provide.

Conflict variables, as in anything considered as conflict within a country ( e.g number of assasinations/population or number of refugees or dummy variables indicating war or not or even degree of democratization). I already have the Polity 4 index and the banks data set. I was just wondering if there were any out there that covered more years and more countries.

Wow, what I coincidence, I'm actually planning on writing a paper that needs that kind of data. My advisor mentioned a database from Uppsala Univ but I haven't had time to check it out, maybe you can look into that
