Cross-Cultural Comparisons and the Presumption of Equivalent Measurement and Theoretical Structure: A Look beneath the Surface.
Byrne, Barbara M.; Campbell, T. Leanne
Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, v30 n5 p555-74 Sep 1999
Demonstrates the extent to which item-score data can vary across cultures despite measurements from an instrument in which factorial structure is specified in each group. Scores from the Beck Depression Inventory for 658 Canadian, 1,096 Swedish, and 691 Bulgarian high school students illustrate the differences. Discusses implications for multigroup comparisons. (SLD)
