Robinson, John P.; Shaver, Phillip R.
This handbook is a compilation and evaluation of 106 attitude scales for survey research. An introductory chapter outlines the ten chapters and discusses the rationale and background of the project. Chapter 2 reviews survey evidence on the correlates of life satisfaction and happiness in the general public. Chapters 3 through 9 review and reproduce attitude scales dealing with: self esteem and self concept, alienation, authoritarian and dogmatic personality characteristics, seven political attitude scales not in "Measures of Political Attitudes," (SO 001 618), and personal, religious, and social values. Chapter 10 examines three sets of scales for measuring the social desirability response set. Another related document is: Measures of Occupational Attitudes and Occupational Characteristics.
