Civil Unrest in the 60s

In recent days, we have witnessed protests on police brutality and social injustice. These events are responses to frustrations that minority has for a long time. To reflect the role of civil unrest in our society we look into DISC’s holdings. Two datasets present us with stories from the 60s. Governmental Units Analysis Data, 1960: Urban Racial Disorders, 1961-1968. This study consists of individual riot and riot summary information for civil disorders which occurred between 1961 and 1968 in 674 cities. https://www.disc.wisc.edu/archive/riot/index.html
Milwaukee Study of Civil Disorder, 1967 recorded the attitudes of Milwaukee residents during the civil disturbances. https://www.disc.wisc.edu/archive/disorder67/index.html
