Iraq Body Count: A Human Security Project

January 17, 2008  |  Data Sources

Iraq Body CountIraq Body Count keeps track of civilian deaths by cross checking media reports and hospital, morgue, and NGO figures. Along with a widget counter that you can post on your blog or site, IBC also makes their database available for download.

Systematically extracted details about deadly incidents and the individuals killed in them are stored with every entry in the database. The minimum details always extracted are the number killed, where, and when.

The data comes in two sets -- incident reports and individuals who have lost their lives -- in the form of CSV files.

Albeit, the data is a little depressing, but still very necessary.
