Abstract:

The study examines alternative statistical models that try to assess the causal factors involved in insurgent control in Central Luzon. A comparison is made of several models that incorporate the operations of the insurgent organization as well as socio-economic variables. All of the formal models suggest that what insurgents do -- their terror and coercion -- is a stronger explanation of current insurgent control than is the socio-economic status of the population.
