description:
The paper uses data from the International Peace Research Institute and the Global Precipitation Climatology databases and the Armed Conflict Data database developed by the International Peace Research Institute of Oslo, Norway, and the University of Uppsala, Sweden (referred to as PRIO/Uppsala). In the dataset armed conflict is defined as a contested incompatibility which concerns government and/or territory where the use of armed force between two parties, of which at least one is the government of a state, results in at least 25 battle-related deaths. The database only focused only on politically motivated violence. All country-year observations with a civil conflict in progress with at least 25 battle deaths per year (or 1,000 battle deaths in some specifications) are coded as ones, and other observations are coded as zeros. Note that, the PRIO/Uppsala does not include conflict information at the subnational level or by month within each year; nor does it provide the exact number of conflict deaths. The dataset from the Precipitation Climatology Project (GPCP) database provides monthly rainfall estimates dating back from 1979. The GPCP data rely on a combination of actual weather station rainfall gauge measures, as well as satellite information on the density of cold cloud cover (which is closely related to actual precipitation), to derive rainfall estimates, at 2.5 latitude and longitude degree intervals.
