A comprehensive, social scientific framework for analyzing foreign policy behavior has been constructed and refined. Interrelationships between certain factors variables have been indicated within the contexts of international source and decision-making behavior and, moreover, within the contexts of different situations and nations. Each factor is being transformed into an actual variable. Data are assembled for the five major sets of factors which are important for both source analysis and process analysis psychological, political, societal, interstate, and global. Nations have been classified on the basis of three dimensions economics, governmental, and capability. Data have already been assembled for each of the dimensions, generating 27 variables for 56 nations. Events are classified on the basis of six dimensions spatial, relational, temporal, situational, substantial, and behavioral.
