Illicit Small Arms Prices – Countries Dataset: Codebook v.2017-01

Abstract:

This codebook documents variables in a dataset described in Marsh, McDougal, Khan, and Lison (2017) as the “Illicit Small Arms Prices—Countries” (iSAP-C) dataset. The dataset is one of two (the other being the “Illicit Small Arms Prices—Transactions”, or iSAP-T, dataset, documented in SADO Working Paper 201604-02) to come out of a joint effort of the Norwegian Initiative on Small Arms Transfers (NISAT) and the Small Arms Data Observatory (SADO). The iSAP-T has an observational unit of arm(s) sold in a single transaction, whilst the iSAP-C, which derives from the iSAP-T, has the more standard country-year observational unit.
