Beyond Zeroes and Ones: The Intensity and Dynamics of Civil Conflict

Stephen Chaudoin, Zachary Peskowitz, Christopher Stanton

NBER Working Paper No. 20258
Issued in June 2014
NBER Program(s):   DEV   POL

There is tremendous variation in conflict intensity both across and within civil conflict spells. Using an instrumental variables approach and a rich set of dynamic, empirical models, we find that the intensity of conflict is negatively related to per-capita income. Economic conditions also affect conflict dynamics, as higher per-capita income reduces the persistence of past conflict intensity.
