A Hierarchical Structure of Basic Human Values in a Third-Order Confirmatory Factor Analysis


Cieciuch, Jan; Davidov, Eldad; Vecchione, Michele; Schwartz, Shalom H (2014). A Hierarchical Structure of Basic Human Values in a Third-Order Confirmatory Factor Analysis. Swiss Journal of Psychology, 73(3):177-182.

Abstract

This study investigates the hierarchical structure of basic human values of Schwartz et al.’s (2012) refined value theory. Data were collected using a revised Portrait Values Questionnaire, which measures the 19 more narrowly defined values. 3,261 respondents from nine countries participated: Finland, Germany, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, and Turkey. Third-order confirmatory factor analyses revealed that the 19 refined values load on values belonging to the earlier catalog of values. Moreover, these values, together with the two new values introduced in the refined theory, load, in turn, on the theoretically postulated four higher-order values that form the third-order level of analysis. Findings support the proposition that the more narrowly defined values in the refined value theory are sub-dimensions of the more broadly defined values in the original theory of basic human values.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
