The conflict intensity is a feature of all conflict measures in a geographical and temporal place. The primary temporal unit of analysis is the calendar month; the primary geographical unit of analysis is the region, that is the top-level, subnational, political division of the state. The HIIK methodology distinguishes between five levels of intensity: dispute, non-violent crisis, violent crisis, limited war, and war. The category of violent conflicts include the violent crisis, the limited war and the war level, other than the nonviolent conflicts (dispute and non-violent crisis), which are referred to as low intensity conflicts. Accordingly, the violent crises are medium intensity conflicts, while wars and limited wars are high intensity conflicts.
