Version V2

The data for this study were collected to provide information on patterns of domestic conflict behavior in 111 independent countries for the years 1919-1966. The variables record the occurrence of riots, anti-government demonstrations, purges, major government crises, strikes, coups, revolutions, assassinations, and guerrilla war. Data exist for the full 42 years for 52 of the countries, but for the other 59 countries data exist for less than 42 years. Data may be obtained in either of two formats: nations as cases or nation/years as cases. In the first format one case would be "Canada" and possible variables would be "riots-1919," etc. In the second format, "Canada-1919" and "Canada-1920" would be possible cases, and "riots" would appear as a variable.
