Content Validity in Evaluation and Policy-Relevant Research.
Mark, Melvin M.; And Others
Evaluation and Program Planning: An International Journal, v8 n2 p87-91 1985
The role of content validity in policy-relevant research is illustrated in a study contrasting results of surveys concerning public opinion toward gun control. Inadequate content validity threatened inferences about the overall level of support for gun control, but not about opinion difference between sexes or respondents of varying political affiliations.
