This report represents a statistical analysis of the current Hamlet Evaluation System (HES). The results showed the presence of two major factors, which accounted for approximately 95% of the common variance. These factors were readily identified as (1) a Security factor and (2) a Development factor. The evidence was that the current HES is meaningful and statistically stable and can be used as the basis for developing extensions to the construct of pacification. Suggestions for doing this are given in the paper.
