Our Methodology and Information Gathering


Daftar Ahwal is not considered as a primary source of information. It is a research, archiving and statistical center for building and saving open databases and archives from all sources with references
International standards will be taken in consideration while building the databases, info-structures and quantitative analysis
Time and place domains will be determined for each report
Among political researches, reports can be fed up with several legal details and criminal procedures about arrests, sessions, verdicts or legal status which support the report topic. All these information sources are an internal huge database including tons of thousands of links. It cannot be published due to its complexity and immensity. Everyone can ask for clarification or understanding of any detail or piece of information via our official platforms and we will respond with clear answers

Two ways for building databases

Drawing trends and patterns for incidents, their details and internal elements. Sometimes it does not represent the full picture or figures in the reality with the same methodology and mechanism
Drawing a general context as an indicator for incidents in purpose of an overall count instead of building their details and internal elements which maybe will be a followed accumulative purpose due to huge details or difficulties in getting accurate information about each incident

Information Sources

Information sources used in databases are secondary, not primary ones
We are committed to transparency, accuracy and determination of methodology and sources for each information in details
Metadata is as precise as possible according to available information, but has not necessarily perfect accuracy. There are a definite hypothesis and deduction in a certain extent according to standards, methodology and big data analysis. All that can be explained in details upon request

Two Courses for using sources

Firstly: Main sources for enrolling an incident

They are used to consider or enroll at least one incident in a definite place and time. They can differ from one report to another, but often they are relied on official sources (Judiciary, MOI, Government) in form of either periodic bulletins, official statements, declarations, documents or evidences. Sometimes they are relied on NGOs or media sources in certain contexts for specific reports which are clarified for each one

Secondly: Complementary sources for building internal and informative structure with details

They are used to build internal and informative structure of incidents after their enrollment in the first step. They can be any type of sources such as official, rights or media sources, testimonies or visual materials after evaluating the raw informative content of source and matching the main elements of an incident
