GeoEPR-ETH Version 2.0
Up to date version of this dataset can be found at http://www.icr.ethz.ch/data/epr/#geoepr
The GeoEPR-ETH Version 2.0 dataset geo-codes all politically relevant ethnic groups from the EPR-ETH Version 2.0 dataset. GeoEPR-ETH 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-ETH dataset is available in research-ready country-year and group-year format from the GROWup Research Front-End data portal.
The dataset is offered in ESRI Shapefile format; the individual files are compressed into a *.zip folder. The GeoEPR polygons follow the WGS84 coordinate system (SRID 4326).
