Reliability and Social Work Research.
Rosenthal, James A.
Social Work Research, v18 n2 p115-21 Jun 1994
Notes that conventional practice in social work research is to recommend level of reliability close to 0.80 as minimum standard. Contends that needed reliability varies by situation: that in situations in which important decisions about individuals are being made, 0.90 provides better standard; whereas in descriptive survey research with large samples, levels of reliability lower than 0.80 suffice.
