Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The data for this collection were merged from four other ICPSR studies: COMPARATIVE FOREIGN POLICY LEARNING PACKAGE (ICPSR 5703), WORLD HANDBOOK OF POLITICAL AND SOCIAL INDICATORS II: CROSS-NATIONAL AGGREGATE DATA, 1950-1965 (ICPSR 5027), WORLD HANDBOOK OF POLITICAL AND SOCIAL INDICATORS II: ANNUAL EVENTS DATA, 1948-1967 (ICPSR 5028), and the World Military Expenditures data series. Data are provided on the international and domestic conflict behavior and national attributes of 85 developing nations (as defined by the United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency) in the period 1962-1967. Included are data on cooperative and conflict events received and sent, various socioeconomic indicators (all for mid-1960s), and various yearly domestic conflict data aggregated to the period 1962-1964 and 1965-1967. Yearly frequencies for each type were aggregated into three-year scores. Domestic conflict behavior variables measure the occurrences of riots, armed attacks, demonstrations, government sanctions and executions, assassinations, irregular power transfers, political strikes, interventions, and deaths from domestic violence. Socioeconomic variables itemize gross national product (GNP), military, educational, and health expenditures, United States' economic aid per capita, population growth rates, energy consumption per capita, literacy rates, and ethno-linguistic fractionalization.
