Unidimensional Scaling



November 1981 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Provides an introduction to the fundamentals of scaling theory and construction, focusing on a variety of unidimensional scaling models. The authors present an overview and comparative analysis of such techniques as Thurstone scaling, Likert scaling, Guttman scaling, and unfolding theory, with emphasis on their varying conceptions of dimensionality.

'The aim of this series is to make the assumptions and practices of quantitative analysis more readily accessible to students and research workers with a limited background in statistics or mathematics...earlier works in the series certainly achieve this aim, and are, on the whole, lucidly written and of a generally high standard. The current two volumes maintain this standard.' -- Personality and Individual Differences, Vol 3 1982

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
