Summary
This study contains information about instances of internal conflict or violence that occurred in various countries or political entities between 1955-1970. Data were collected from serial publications on any overt collective confrontation between private and/or public groups that took place within the boundaries of a political system. Events in over 100 countries were recorded for the period 1961-1965. From the original group of countries, 87 were also coded for civil strife events occurring between 1966-1970, and a stratified sample of 10 political entities designed to represent countries at different levels of economic development was further investigated for the period 1955-1960. Each event was coded for approximately 90 characteristics, including date and duration of event, type and number of participants, location, type of event, motives of actors, and amounts of violence. Related studies CIVIL STRIFE CONFLICT MAGNITUDES, 1955-1970 (ICPSR 7485) and CONFLICT AND SOCIETY (ICPSR 7452) contain, respectively, measures of the magnitude and intensity of the events covered in the present study and indicators for the independent variables selected to test causal relationships with these events
