Civilian Casualties in Afghanistan

We are currently engaged in a large-scale data collection effort designed to track patterns of violence against civilians in Afghanistan over time (2008-15). Drawing on multiple data sources, we aim to construct a village-level dataset recording by both the Taliban and the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). We are interested not only in explaining patterns of civilian victimization but also assisting the targeting of economic and other assistance to the neediest areas in Afghanistan.
