Analysis of Reported Deaths in Syria Tracker Data
We have recently been performing some geospatial analysis of Syria Tracker data and hope to be adding some regular reports in the coming weeks. In the meantime, we would like to share some initial findings, after a brief discussion of how locations are entered in Syria Tracker--

Locations
Unfortunately, for the security of those reporting from within Syria, most reports are not fixed to a GPS location. Users that submit reports via the website can graphically indicate a location on the map. Reports by twitter are mapped to the lowest level of detail based on the description and recorded as a Lat Lon. We have used an GIS application to reverse map against shapefiles for the Syrian Administrative districts at levels 1, 2, and 3, and can now correlate death reports with elements from the Syrian 2004 Census, which, although not necessarily the most current, can still provide some understanding.

The first question we posed is, among the lowest level (Admin 3) regions (Called a Nahya) which had the highest ratio of reported deaths. We totaled all deaths reported in each Nahya through May 18, 2012 and compared to the 2004 population to get the number of deaths reported for each 10,000 in population. It was a bit of a surprise based on news coverage, but the central region in Idleb suffered 120 deaths per 10,000 pop (in 2004) more than twice of the equivalent in Homs, or any other region. We have several maps—one that shows all of Syria, and color codes those with reported deaths per 10K population from green (low) to high (red).
