The forecasts are based on predictors such as population, infant mortality rates (IMR), secondary education, youth population, and conflict history. We deal with internal armed conflict, defined as conflict over a political incompatibility between a government and an organized opposition that leads to at least 25 battle-related deaths per year, and distinguish between minor (25–999 deaths per year) and major conflict (more than 1000 deaths per year).
