The authors developed incident-level data on political violence in Pakistan from 1988 to the present. These data include a range of details on 27,555 incidents to help:
- Identify broad patterns of violence across multiple actors and types of events for each district and province of Pakistan.
- Bring clarity to policy debates over who suffered which kinds of violence, where, and when.
- Inform basic research in political science, sociology, and South Asian studies.
