The Semantic Structure of a Set of Scales Developed for Use with Inner-City Pupils.
Ayrer, James E.; Farber, Irvin J.
Seventy-two scales collected from a previous study were administered to a group of 557 sixth grade, Philadelphia public school children who were mainly from the lower socioeconomic class. A matrix sampling approach was used in collecting the data. The mean value for each scale was established and these values were correlated. The resulting 72 x 72 matrix was factor analyzed using the Principal Components method with Varimax rotation of five factors. The five factors accounted for 33% of the variance. Comparisons were made with previous studies. (Author)
