Events Data for Four International Crises: 1941, 1950, 1962 (ICPSR 7701)
The study consists of data for over 9,000 events collected from The New York Times Index and, in some cases, The New York Times itself. The events occurred during four international crises: the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 1941, the German invasion of the Soviet Union, June 1941, the outbreak of the Korean War, June 1950, and the Cuban Missile Crisis, October 1962. The data were collected for the principal actors in each crisis and span a period from 18 months prior to the crisis to one month subsequent to the actual crisis. Five primary variables are coded for the data: date of occurrence, initiator and recipient of the event, geographical area, and a classification code based on the World Event/Interaction Survey (WEIS) coding scheme.
