UCDP Datasets UCDP Datasets

The Uppsala Conflict Data Program (UCDP) offers a number of datasets on organised violence and peacemaking, most of which are updated on an annual basis. A complete list of datasets are available in the UCDP data section, which also holds the datasets' individual pages where the datasets, codebooks and version histories can be downloaded. 

In the UCDP data section, you can also create your own datasets by using the tools "Dynamic Datasets" and "Customized Reports".

For datasets used by UCDP authors of articles appearing in academic publications, see Replication Datasets in the UCDP's data section.
