Conflict Data

I just found a really fun dataset that I wanted to share with you all. It’s a list of civil and inter-state conflicts throughout the world from 1946 to almost present day. It’s collected and provided by the UCDP/PRIO. A new working paper just came out by a Harvard economist, Nathan Nunn and Nancy Qian, a Yale economist, using the data. I think there are lots of cool applications for it.
