Urban Development and Mass Killing: A First Look at the Data
This chapter presents the empirical research design adopted to test our main hypothesis. We discuss how we constructed and our annual 0.5-degree grid cell-year sample of nondemocratic states and explain why this grid cell-year framework is appropriate for testing our main hypothesis. This is followed by a description of how we operationalized our dependent variable and one of the independent variables—namely, urban development per capita at the grid cell-year level. Finally, we conduct a large-N statistical analysis of the association between our urban development per capita measure and the likelihood of mass killing campaigns by 0.5-degree grid cell in nondemocratic regimes.
