List of coders


The GeoEPR 2014 dataset geo-codes all politically relevant ethnic groups from the EPR 2014 dataset. GeoEPR assignes every politically relevant group one of six settlement patterns and, if possible, provides polygons describing their location on a digital map.


Descriptive (non-spatial) information on ethnic group's settlement patterns from the GeoEPR v. 2.0 dataset is available in research-ready country-year and group-year format from the GROWup Research Front-End data portal. Update to the 2014 edition will be made available in early 2015.

You may also download the latest version (2014, released on December 23, 2014) of the complete GeoEPR dataset directly:

The GeoEPR polygons follow the WGS84 coordinate system (SRID 4326).
