  • Abstract

    This data collection contains the principal indicators of independent variables developed by Ted Robert Gurr for use in testing models of the causes of civil violence. Information was gathered on 86 countries or polities worldwide and indices were constructed to meet the theoretical requirements of the investigators' research on instances of internal conflict as captured in CIVIL STRIFE EVENTS, 1955-1970 (ICPSR 7531). General categories of independent variables included in the present study are basic social properties, social processes, economic processes, social rigidities, coercive interventions, regime coercion, conflict traditions, regime characteristics, and dissident group characteristics. Aggregate measures of the dependent variables (internal conflicts) are provided in CIVIL STRIFE CONFLICT MAGNITUDES, 1955-1970 (ICPSR 7485).
