Abstract
The present study investigates the impact of youth bulges on the armed conflicts in Sudan. It
uses the 2008 census data on 25 states and builds a logistic regression model for the analysis.
Relative risk analysis is also used to measure the association between the two variables. The
impact of youth bulge on the armed conflict is not clearly detected, however, the impact of
secondary school attendance rate for males and the access to clean drinking water is found to
be statistically highly significant.
