This chapter describes the truth commission characteristics dataset collected for this project. The data collected are a series of variables used to distinguish truth commissions from one another. The data are created using the United States Institute of Peace’s Digital Library to access primary and secondary source documents related to 45 truth commissions and inquiries of truth. Key variables as well as a handful of other interesting descriptive statistics are discussed.
