Abstract : Patterns, indicators, and forecasts of international environments and behavior are of interest to policymakers as they try to link national goals and policy alternatives and to scholars as they try to develop a 'meteorology' of international relations. A problem exists in delineating trend patterns so that precise and reliable forecasts can be made. Research is proposed on three-mode factor analysis as a possible solution to this problem. The research should improve judgement on how well three-mode factor analysis contributes to clarifying patterns, indicators and forecasts of international environments and behavior. (Author)
