Guidelines for Personnel Security Research Recommendations from the IC Behavioral and Social Sciences Research Group (3/12)
Personnel security research is conducted to improve security processes and provide policymakers with a defensible evidence base from which to justify their risk-management decisions. While U.S. Government agencies strive to conduct sound personnel security research, the degree to which this research adheres to scientific principles of study design, procedures, statistical analysis, and reporting often varies. At the request of the Defense Personnel Security Research Center (PERSEREC), this document was created to serve as a reference for both researchers and policymakers. Authored by behavioral scientists familiar with personnel security research, it provides guidance on scientific approaches to study design, sampling, data collection, statistical analysis, and the reporting of research findings. This document should be used as a reference by those undertaking research efforts in personnel security and by those seeking to use personnel security research findings to inform policy or process decisions.
