In this book, an assessment of psychometric properties of scales used in consumer behaviour research is made. It looks into the study area of factors that are most likely to influence individuals to consume product and services. An evaluation of various instruments commonly utilized by researchers and academics in this field of research is discussed.
The book contains eight units and explores several concepts and theories in the area of consumer socialization before making an evaluation of the different research instruments. Psychometric properties refer to the validity and reliability of the measurement tool. Before being able to state that a questionnaire has excellent psychometric properties, meaning a scale is both reliable and valid, it must be evaluated extensively, hence leading to its importance in research.
The purpose of this book is to provide some insights and assessment of various instruments commonly used by researchers in the area of consumer behaviour, which ultimately leads to consumption among consumers. In order for the reader to be able to apply the basic ideas of psychometric theory to actual data sets of relevance, this book aims to introduce such ideas. Its goal is not to turn readers to become measurement experts, but rather to give them the confidence and knowledge they need to better understand and participate in the research process.
