All Africa Monadic Update 1997 - 2014
Monadic files are useful to analyse conflict actors and actor types. This is a file in which Actor 1 and Actor 2 appear in a single column, with each actor’s activity constituting a single unit of analysis. This allows users to analyse things like the proportion of events in which a particular actor or actor type is involved; or the geographic patterns of activity of specific actors. Creating a monadic file involves duplicating the events so that each actor is represented as participating in a single event (almost doubling the number of events in the dataset). For this reason, monadic files are not useful for analysis of the number of events or overall patterns of violence in a country, etc. They should be used for analysis of actors, actor types and patterns in their activity.
