The result of the regression in this essay shows that, with the data I'm using, the percentage of democracies does not has any significant effect on the percentage of countries in a state of war. However, a rise in GDP per capita and a increase in intrastate conflicts has a negative effect on the percentage of countries in a state of war. (Less)
