Journal of Marriage and the Family, v59 n4 p824-33 Nov 1997
Presents the rationale for and initial findings concerning the development of the Parental Comparison Level Index (PCLI). Explains that the PCLI--based on interpersonal processes--focuses on the role that expectations and comparative processes play in relationships. Data collected on 439 parents offer strong support for two highly reliable subscales: reward and cost. (RJM)
