Supplementary notes

The source does not specify a publication date. The release date is therefore the date the data was accessed.
The source specifies: "These graphs depict countrywide deaths broken down by perpetrator. These include Boko Haram, state security services, and sectarian groups (excluding Boko Haram). To avoid double counting deaths, the NST distinguishes between incidents in which one perpetrator is involved and in which more than one perpetrator is involved. As a result, deaths of Boko Haram and State Actors are combined for the category "Boko Haram, State Actor," which corresponds to incidents where there was a clash. These five groups represent the majority of deaths documented by the NST. There are additional deaths included in the overall NST count, displayed in graph 1, that are not reflected here."
