PRACTICAL METHODOLOGIES FOR CROSS-CULTURAL RESEARCHSince all research is in a sense comparative, it is sometimesargued that methods and requirements remain the same, no matterwhat country or nationality is involved. The editors of this volumecontend that this philosophy is an oversimplification. Althoughcomparative survey research builds on and benefits from bestpractices established in monocultural research, cross-culturalresearch requires methodologies which address the central issues ofequivalence of measurement and comparability of findings. Theliterature dealing with these issues has tended to be piecemeal,scattered across disciplines, and focused on specificquestionnaires and the needs of single disciplines. This bookprovides the first systematic, interdisciplinary and hands-ontreatment of the issues of greatest saliency for comparative surveyresearch within and across countries.Breaking new ground in its approach, Cross-Cultural Survey Methodsdescribes how to recognize and deal with the major obstacles ateach stage of researching, striving for equivalence andcomparability. Topics include:* Designing and crafting questionnaires for comparative subjects,including questionnaire translation* Error and bias issues in cross-national surveys* Techniques for analyzing bias and equivalence* Statistical techniques for substantive analysis and the use ofmultidimensional scaling to analyze bias and researchquestions* Important issues of preparing data for secondary analysis, suchas data access, and documentation* An introduction to meta-analysis in comparative surveyresearchConsistently readable and grounded in the expertise of notedinternational authorities, this volume fills an increasing need forpractical methodologies for cross-cultural research.
