I know there have been some pretty disappointed campers out there the last two empty Fridays. But now it’s time to cheer up. Data Dump Friday is back! Moreover, as a special treat I’m throwing a change up containing some Peruvian conflict event data this time rather than the usual fare of public opinion data … Continue reading Data Dump Friday – Event Data for the Peruvian Conflict
I suppose it will come as no surprise that I’m putting up a bit more Iraq public opinion survey data sponsored by the US State Department and obtained through a FOIA. This time it’s some polls from April of 2006. I’m unlikely to dump more data over the next three weeks because I’ll be traveling … Continue reading Data Dump Friday
Hello again. I’ve loaded up the data page with more than 20 new public opinion surveys. That’s the good news. The bad news is that these are all surveys fielded in Iraq by D3 Systems and KA Research Limited. So I expect them to be loaded with fabricated data. Ultimately, I think the main value of … Continue reading Data Dump Friday Returns!
Another poll in two versions which seem to be slightly different on the data page.
Hi. I got kind of wrapped up with submitting a paper to a journal last Friday and didn’t mention to dump any data but I’ve just make up for this by putting a Kirkuk poll on the data page.
Hi. I’ve posted one more Iraq poll on the conflict data page. More importantly, after help from Andrew Wheeler I can now extract codebooks from SPSS datasets. So I’ve gone back and posted proper codebooks for all the datasets on the site. MS

In the process of doing this it suddenly dawned on me that I need to do still more … Continue reading Data Dump Friday – Another Iraq Poll
Hi everybody. I’m on the road this week and next and realize that I’m lacking certain capabilities on my laptop that I need to do more data postings. So please give me a little extra time and I’ll do a big dump when I get back. Mike Spagat
I managed to get another dataset up on the conflict data page today. More importantly, I realized that the csv files I’ve been posting for the people who don’t have SPSS were actually not very useful for….errr… people who don’t have SPSS. The reason is that the questions are lost when I do the conversion. … Continue reading Data Dump Friday – Part 3, another Iraq Poll
Happy Friday. I have just posted here three new things. A list of all the data sets that Steve Koczela obtained from the State Department through his successful FOIA application. An Iraq poll from April 2006 fielded by the Iraq Center for Research and Strategic Studies (ICRSS). [Note – this organization seems to be defunct. Perhaps … Continue reading Data Dump Friday – Part 2, some Iraq Polling Data
