ETHNIC POWER RELATIONS

Access to State Power of Politically Relevant Ethnic Groups, 1946-2005

 

The Ethnic Power Relations (EPR) dataset identifies all politically relevant ethnic groups and their access to state power in every country of the world from 1946 to 2005. It includes annual data on 733 groups and codes the degree to which their representatives hold executive-level state power — from total control of the government to overt political discrimination.

WARS BY LOCATION AND PURPOSE

1816-2001

 

We identify the location and purpose of all 464 major wars since 1816, expanding substantially on previous efforts by including wars fought in all polities, including pre-independent kingdoms and empires. The data complements standard war datasets that characterize wars only by the state participants that fight them.
