African Coup Events Data, 1986-1990 (ICPSR 6869)
Principal Investigator(s): Wang, T.Y.
This survey focuses on coup events in African countries where a state's military, security, or police force was involved. Annual data were collected for coup events between 1986 and 1990 in 45 sub-Saharan African countries. This study replicates McGowan's coding scheme and method of collecting African coup data (see the Related Publication section). Variables include number of successful, attempted, and plotted military coups, as well as year and country name.
