Abstract: The conflict dataset is based on the dataset from the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at the Uppsala University. It has been extended to cover the entire period 1946-2001. The work has been done in collaboration with the International Peace Research Institute in Oslo. The armed conflict dataset is regularly updated, and the most recent version is available at the data project’s website. Users can also find other compilations of the dataset (other file formats, dyadic data for interstate conflicts, and an Access database containing all this information).
