A statistical analysis of Iraq body counts
The Iraq conflict is one of the most outrageous and unprovoked aggressions unleashed by the West. Here, we provide a statistical analysis of the number of civilians deaths resulting from the US-led invasion. For this purpose, we propose several new discrete distributions. The distributions are fitted to the data on the number of deaths by maximum likelihood. Variables like province, cause of death and time are taken as covariates. Useful predictions are given on the number of deaths. Copyright Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2015
