An Exploration in Systems Analysis of Domestic Conflict.
HAWAII UNIV HONOLULU DEPT OF POLITICAL SCIENCE
Pagination or Media Count:
This paper describes a strategy for the quantitative, time series and cross sectional analyses of political systems. A study of domestic conflict in 60 nations for 11 years is presented as an illustration of the procedure. It was found that the inclusion of individual time variables in P factor analysis is insufficient for the adequate description of over time variation. Grouping of nations based on over - time similiarity using periodic equations was much more successful.
