  • UCDP - Uppsala Conflict Data Program

    The UCDP annually publishes the Georeferenced Event Dataset that contains detailed information on single organized violence events since 1989. Since the spatial and temporal resolution is very high, it can be used for extensive analyses. Besides information of the involved actors, numbers of victims are also mentioned for each event. Furthermore, the single events are linked to the other conflict datasets of UCDP.

  • The World Bank

    The World Bank is based in Washington, DC. With financial and technical funds, it supports developing countries worldwide. Its focus is the sustainable fight against poverty by further training and advisory activities. The World Bank has got 188 members and consists of five institutions. It obtains its data on the population from the United Nations. As not all governments regularly present (accurate) data, the United Nations base their estimates on the latest official census, taking birth- and death rates as well as international migration into account.
