Project methodology Determine which factors influence piracy activity Assign these factors quantitative values Using both these values, and figures for frequency of attacks, construct a multiple linear regression analysis of the situation

Industrial Collaborators: 

Industrial Collaborators International Maritime Organization

Next Step: 

Next Step Continue to read up on the subject Finalise the statistical side of the project - determine the influencing factors - look into how to assign values to these qualitative factors - plan the design
