Usage

false_cow_dyads

Format

A data frame the following four variables.

ccode1

a numeric vector for the Correlates of War state code for the first state

ccode2

year

Details

Think of the directed Suriname and Republic of Vietnam dyad here as illustrative here. The Republic of Vietnam exits the Correlates of War state system on April 30, 1975 whereas Suriname enters the state system on November 25, 1975. Both appear in the same year, but not at the same time.
