The political art of raising issues of blame and pinning someone else with the responsibility can also be used opportunistically in what has been termed the "politicization" of crises and policy failures. The absence of any agreements broken in the case again highlights that this is a primarily cooperative component where everyone wants to be seen as contributing to the good and successful management of the crisis. The case level of analysis the CATPCA identifies four underlying patterns. The first pattern is related to structural and organizational variables. The second represents psychological reactions to the crisis characteristics. The third case level pattern represents actors being earnest and responsible, and the fourth illustrates cooperation that takes place in situations of perceived management success. The CATPCA of the case level cooperation variables was conducted using nominal scaling of the variables. The CATPCA solution selected, accounts for approximately sixty-eight percent of the total variance at the case level of analysis.
