Description:

The PRIO-Grid data set is a spatio-temporal grid structure constructed to aid the compilation, management and analysis of spatial data within a time-consistent framework. It consists of quadratic grid cells that jointly cover all terrestrial areas of the world.

Each grid cell contains cell-specific information on armed conflicts, socio-economic conditions, ethnic groups, physical attributes, climatic conditions and more. Please see the codebook for a complete overview of all the variables included in the PRIO-GRID dataset.

Please contact Andreas Forø Tollefsen (andreas(at)prio.no) if you have questions, comments or suggestions regarding the PRIO-GRID dataset.

Please feel free to suggest spatial data you would like to see included in the PRIO-GRID.
