To the problem of optimization of criteria for evaluating the effectiveness of providing the national security of the State

Keywords: assessment, evaluation, criteria, provision, national security, indicators.


It has been argued that the evaluation of the effectiveness of Ukrainian national security is the activities of authorized entities carried out in the prescribed manner, which aims to establish the extent to which measures implemented by the state in the relevant direction, as well as related financial, material technical and human costs, meet the goal.

It has been performed the classification of the relevant criteria, which is most appropriate to divide into the following groups: 1) financial and economic, which include: the level of shadowing of the economy; the level of GDP per capita; the ratio of public debt to GDP; the average level of wages in the state; 2) socio-cultural, in particular: the demographic situation in the country (depopulation rate); the level of legal consciousness of society and cultural development; national consent and unity; a sense of personal security; the level of support of the population of the state; 3) political: stability and effectiveness of public policy (domestic political stability); resilience to ensure a high level of readiness of society and the state to respond to a wide range of threats; the level of democracy, the formation and effectiveness of the legal framework of the rule of law; 4) indicators of combat readiness of the army: the state of the armed forces, their combat capability and combat readiness; logistical, financial support of troops; adequacy of staffing.

Emphasis has been placed on the fact that the list of these criteria is not exhaustive, as they can be expanded by a number of indicators that depend directly on the direction of national security. These criteria are an objective reflection of how effective the legislator is in this area. In addition, the implementation of appropriate evaluation requires the use of various methods: surveys, mathematical modeling, forecasting and more.
