The following aspects of this study are highlighted below:

The probability that the import volume of goods and services of the countries that experienced mass protests in the Middle East is equal to the import volume of goods and services of America is 72%. see evidence

The probability that the overall unemployment rate as percentage of total labor force in the countries that experienced mass protests in the Middle East is equal to the overall unemployment rate of all other Middle Eastern Countries is 33.5%

  • Mean of unemployment rate in countries that revolted: 12.11%
  • Stdev of unemployment rate in countries that revolted: 2.07

  • Mean of unemployment rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 10.18%
  • Stdev of unemployment rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 7.08

The probability that the overall inflation rate as percent change in end of period consumer prices in countries that experienced mass protests in the Middle East is equal to the overall inflation rate of all other Middle Eastern Countries is 51%
  • Mean of inflation rate in countries that revolted: 9.38%
  • Stdev of inflation rate in countries that revolted: 6.48

  • Mean of inflation rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 11.5%
  • Stdev of inflation rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 16.06


The probability that the overall percent change in the import volume of goods and services in countries that experienced mass protests in the Middle East is equal to the overall amount of foreign investment of all other Middle Eastern Countries is: 10%.

  • Mean of import rate in countries that revolted: 4.78% change in import rate
  • Stdev of import rate in countries that revolted: 1.27

  • Mean of import rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 10.21% change in import rate
  • Stdev of import rate in all other Middle Eastern countries that did not revolt: 17.01

Although not shown in the conclusions picture on each results page, the situations in which I would reject the null hypothesis are significant because it shows which of the countries that revolted did not have a similar economic factor as its counterparts.
