Grassroots Politicians: Party Activists in British Columbia

By Donald E. Blake; R. K. Carty et al. | Go to book overview

Appendix
The attitude scales utilized in this analysis were derived from a large battery of 'agree/disagree' items plus Likert-type items measuring degree of support for spending increases or decreases in a variety of policy areas and degree of support for increases or decreases in government regulation. Some scales are identical to those used in previous analyses of federal party activists ( Blake 1988) or provincial voters ( Blake 1985).The items used to construct each scale are given below. For 'agree/disagree' items, the answer corresponding to the direction in which the scale is scored appears in parentheses. Where a scale item is based on the choice between a pair of statements, the choice corresponding to the direction of the scale is indicated. Those responding in the direction in which the scale was scored for a given item were given a score of 1, 0 otherwise. The total scale score for a respondent is the sum of these item scores. The category combinations corresponding to the direction in which the scale was scored are given in parentheses. Further details of scale construction are available on request.
