This dataset contains data for aid project locations in South-of-Sahara nations that experienced conflict between 1989 and 2008. To enter the dataset a country in Sub-Saharan Africa needs to have experienced at least one year of intra-state conflict since the start of 1989. To experience intra-state conflict means that there have been 25 annual deaths, or more, in violence between at least one organized group and the government. The thresholds and year ranges are based on standards adopted by UCDP. Once a country has entered the dataset, the years where organized non-state groups battle each other are also coded. A country remains in the dataset for every first year after a year of intra-state conflict, or non-state violence. After spells of inactivity a country can always enter the dataset again. A country in which a conflict starts after 2007 is not included. For the cases that are included in the dataset, 2008 is the last year that is coded.
