The first data collection project by the Yemen Data Project focuses on the aerial bombardments in Yemen from March 2015 to August 2016 and includes detailed data on all air raids conducted by the military coalition led by Saudi Arabia, which also includes participation from the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain. The military coalition is backed by the United States and the United Kingdom with the US providing intelligence and logistical support, and the US and UK also having their military personnel deployed in the Saudi command-and-control centre for coalition airstrikes.

The dataset lists the date of incident, geographical location, type of target, target category and sub-category, and, where known, time of day. Each incident indicates a stated number of air-raids, which in turn may comprise multiple airstrikes. It is not possible to generate an average number of airstrikes per air-raid as these vary greatly, from a couple of airstrikes up to several dozen per air-raid.
