The report is one of a continuing series of reports describing selected results in the development and application of quantitative international affairs indicators. The objective of the research program is to develop a family of quantitative international affairs indicators that will be useful for systematically recording, interpreting, and anticipating significant international phenomena. In the paper, attention is shifted to results achieved in the development of a second type of international affairs indicators. These indicators are representations of country characteristics selected because of their relevance to national security matters. Country characteristics refer to phenomena that are significant in international affairs but do not directly relate to interaction among countries.
