Abstract : This report is an attempt to relate national motives to domestic conflict with time lagged multiple correlation analysis. Raw data on domestic violence came from a variety of sources that spanned the years from 1955 to 1966. Both the motive data and the conflict data were factor analyzed, and factor scores were obtained. Using 1955 as a base year differences were calculated for years up to 1966. The highest multiple correlations found between the difference in motive scores from 1925 to 1950 and conflict were .46 with 1955-1957 change in domestic violence. A hypothesized increasing correlation with time lags between motive differences and conflict differences was not confirmed.
