The Composition of Religious and Ethnic Groups (CREG) database pulls together information from dozens of international sources, including the CIA World Factbook and the Britannica Book of the Year, to produce the most comprehensive and granular source of worldwide trends in ethnic and religious conflict. The database, a project of the Cline Center for Democracy at the University of Illinois, focuses on the 165 largest countries in the world during the post-WWII era. The data will allow researchers in a variety of fields to study how variations in civil strife can affect other aspects of nations’ development.

The full data set is available for download in the CSV file format.
