European Protest and Coercion Data


This site contains daily and sub-daily coded data on protest and coercion. The data are interval. The date, day, action type, location, protest group and targets are shown, the organizational strength of the protesters is estimated and there is a description of each event with the identification of the original source.

You will find all files both in Microsoft Office 97/2000 and in ASCII formats. The data are in Excel 97/2000 format as well as in ASCII text and tab-delimited format. Now complete are Albania, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czechoslovakia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, FR Germany, GDR, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Northern Ireland, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

The project is complete. Thanks to all of the student coders (see the project codebook) who toiled long and tedious hours. We have added a new section with historical civil war data. If you have questions, please e-mail me.

This project was supported by the National Science Foundation (SBR-9631229) and by the Department of Political Science and the General Research Fund of the University of Kansas. If you have comments or questions about the data, please contact me at ronfran@ku.edu. Please notify me and cite the URL if you publish a paper or a book with the data.
