Table III lists 317 published, quantitative, international studies and their essential characteristics. This Table provides these characteristics in one place and thus avoids the necessity of repeating them in the text of this Vol. 4: War, Power, Peace when a study's results are used or referred to several times.
A number of qualifications and considerations should be taken into account in using the Table.

1. I also excluded results whose underlying methods were not made clear, unless through personal knowledge I had confidence in the researcher's capability. Also, a work may be mixed: some of the research may be skillfully done, while the remainder may involve methods over which the author obviously does not have command. In such cases, I utilized only the competent parts, if relevant. Therefore, the inclusion of a study in Table III does not imply a view that all its research is ably done.
