This study contains daily aggregate data on 480 events and 960 events of the Arab-Israeli conflicts of 1967 and 1973, respectively. Three general sets of variables are presented: (1) manual-content analyses of the public statements of Israeli leaders, (2) computer-content analyses of the public statements of Israeli leaders, and (3) records of events initiated by the Arabs toward the Israelis, and those initiated by the Israelis toward the Arabs. The manual-content analyses data contain measures of the perception of time pressure, the components of threat perception, and indices of threat perception. The computer-content analyses data include the Osgood semantic differential measures and a combined index of threat perception. The events data were coded using WEIS categories, and Walter Corson's and Edward Azar's indexing systems. The events variables include total recorded events of any type per day, verbal and physical cooperation, participatory events, verbal defensive and offensive conflict events, and military and nonmilitary conflict events initiated by the Arabs toward the Israelis, and by the Israelis toward the Arabs.
