Example text

Someone else might define it less generally as the set of beliefs about the extent of the government's role in solving societal problems. Presumably, each of these definitions of ideology would require different indicators (or operational definitions) to provide a test of the hypotheses. Focusing only on the second definition, several alternative indicators may be suggested. The scale made up of policy questions discussed above certainly seems appropriate, as would a single question on the role of the federal government in solving problems or an item asking respondents to place themselves on a scale ranging from strongly conservative to strongly liberal.

This cannot be readily dismissed, but how can it be established as valid? This leads to another distinction between reliability and validity. The assumption that measurement error is random simplifies the task of estimating and correcting for unreliability. As will be seen, all that are required are some fairly simple assumptions and models. Validity is much more difficult to deal with since it involves the extent to which systematic sources of variance other than the theoretical concept are affecting the indicator.
