Abstract
This DRDC Toronto technical memorandum contains summaries of a select number of widely used open-source conflict and security indices freely available on the World Wide Web. It provides a succinct description and purpose of each project, information about the supporting organization, principal investigators, data sources used, temporal coverage, the number of countries included, data and variables, methodology, and data accessibility and format. The summaries represent a focused extension of DRDC Toronto technical report 2008-167 which aimed to provide a comprehensive overview of open-source databases accessible via the Internet that are meant to be used as guides for international investors, official aid donors, policy makers, analysts, academia and other information seekers looking to exploit conflict-and security-related open-source information.
