Integrating Conflict Event Data
Together with colleagues at the University of Maryland/START we developed a new automated, transparent, reproducible methodology for integrating event data sets called MELTT. We show that using integrating data from four leading conflict event data sets (UCDP-GED, ACLED, GTD, SCAD) provides a more complete picture of conflict. We also apply multiple systems estimation to show that each of these data sets has substantial missingness in coverage. The study was published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.
