This chapter surveys fifteen large-sample datasets on genocides, mass killings, and lower-level intentional violence against civilians spanning the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Data trends on large-scale and lower-level civilian atrocity occurrences and fatalities are presented and compared to similar diagnostics for interstate wars, civil wars, and terrorism. The survey illustrates how data-collecting organizations conceptualize and code intentional violence against civilians, the extraordinary severity of mass atrocities relative to interstate wars, civil wars, and terrorism, and the separate (two-track) development of datasets for wars and mass atrocities in the history of quantitative research on war and peace. The chapter also features a list of genocides and mass killings since 1900.

Keywords:   genocide, mass killing, mass atrocity, war, terrorism, conflict datasets
