    ACLED (Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project) is the most comprehensive public collection of political violence data for developing states. This dataset contains information on the specific dates and locations of political violence, the types of event, the groups involved, fatalities and changes in territorial control. Information is recorded on the battles, killings, riots, and recruitment activities of rebels, governments, militias, armed groups, protesters and civilians. As of early 2015, ACLED has recorded over 100,000 individual events, with ongoing data collection focused on Africa, South Asia and South East Asia. Data can be used for medium- and long-term analysis and mapping of political violence across developing countries through use of historical data from 1997, as well as informing humanitarian and development work in crisis and conflict-affected contexts through realtime data updates and reports. Despite the waning of civil wars across the developing world, ACLED data show that political violence rates have remained relatively stable in the past eighteen years. ACLED seeks to support research and work devoted to understanding, predicting and reducing levels of violence and their consequences.

  • ACLED Conflict Data Project
    Updated April 18, 2017 | Dataset date: Apr 15, 2017
    ACLED conflict and protest data for African states from 1997 – December 2015 is available in Version 6 of the the ACLED dataset. Realtime data for 2016 is collected and published on a weekly basis, and will continue to be made available through the Climate Change and African Political Stability (CCAPS) website and on this page. Due to the realtime nature of data collection which results in occasional reporting lags, and/or insufficient detail in early event reports for inclusion in the dataset, a small number of events in the 2016 data pre-date this period. These have been coded and published for the first time in 2016 and do not duplicate any events found in the full published dataset. Data files are updated each Monday, containing data from the previous week. The data files below include a single running file for all 2016 data, with monthly files updated on an ongoing basis.
  • ACLED Conflict Data Project
    Updated March 21, 2017 | Dataset date: Jan 1, 2017
    ACLED makes its dataset of disaggregated conflict and protest data publicly available. A new version of the dataset is released annually, with data from the previous year and targeted quality review being added in each new version. Files for all countries are composed of ACLED events which indicate the day, actors, type of activity, location, fatalities, sources and notes for individual politically violent events. Please see the codebook for further details on conflict categories, actors, events and sources. The user guide provides guidance on downloading and reading files. ACLED data are presented in three forms: the first is an Excel for the entire African continent; the second is a corresponding shapefile of the African continent created from those data; the third format is an Excel file called “COUNTRY X” containing data disaggregated by country which occur in the named state’s territory (including foreign groups active in a state’s territory).
