Core Social Variables and Their Implementation in Measurement Instruments

  • Jürgen H. P. Hoffmeyer-Zlotnik
  • Uwe Warner
Chapter

Abstract

The present book focuses on six core social variables: education, labour status, occupation/job, household income, private household, and ethnicity.  Chapter 5 describes the instruments available for the measurement of each variable, the conditions under which these instruments are applied, and the results that can to be expected. Taking sociological approach as their starting point, the authors then present their own proposal for the development of an instrument for the measurement of each variable. They start with the national or cultural concept and the national structures derived there from. They then proceed one step at a time to an instrument suitable for use in cross-national comparative survey research. In the case of the household income variable, the description of the development of the proposed measurement instrument is followed by a presentation of a number of instruments developed by statisticians that are designed either to standardise income or to define inequality indicators.
