This comparative analysis has several weaknesses:

The variable of countries that have revolted verses countries that have not revolted is not distinct and may be "not independent" because this variable dependes on perspective; for expample, the revolts could vary by region in each country. Therefore, this variable is defined as "countries that have experienced mass protests"

There has been evidence of non-response bias where there is no data available for some countries.

This project tested if the countries that revolted had similar economic factors to other countries. It does not account for severe economic conditions or outliers. Also, this project finds patterns, however it does not imply causatation.
