The Social Conflict in Analysis Database (SCAD) contains information on protests, riots, strikes, and other social disturbances in Africa, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Whereas conflict data is generally available for large-scale events such as civil and international war, the purpose of this dataset is to compile information on other types of social and political disorder. Every country in Africa and the Caribbean Basin (with a population greater than 1 million) is covered from 1990 through 2013. The primary source of information for this dataset comes from searches of Associated Press and Agence France Presse newswires, as compiled bythe Lexis-Nexis news service.
