UCDP - Georeferenced Event Dataset

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.
