Since 1949, there has not been a decade in which there was not a coup in some Arab state. Where will the first coup of the 2010-2020 period be? Expect an updated set of spreadsheets on based (and expanding) on the data in the ones referenced in this post: “La-a la-a, ana ir-ra’is” this weekend. More variables added, new charts, etc.
A separate sheet not including Comoros — a major outlier in the data set (it makes up something like 14% of all Arab coups when included) — will probably be set up too. Definitions of what are and are not included as coups can be expected too. Ideas for variables are welcome in the comments section.
