English title: Uncovering Societal and Individual Determinants of Power- and Achievement-Values. An Application of Multilevel Confirmatory Factor Analysis with Covariates
Author(s): Dennis Köthemann -
Type: Conference paper/poster
In the area of comparative value research some studies deal with societal factors like socioeconomic development influencing values (e.g. Inglehart). Other analyses focus on individual factors like social stratification (e.g. Kohn & Schooler). However, it lacks research taking into account societal- and individual-factors within a multilevel framework. This paper applies multilevel confirmatory factor analysis with covariates (Muthén & Muthén 2010) to explain differences in the priority of power- and achievement-values at both levels. Some advantages using this kind of analysis for comparative research are demonstrated, e.g. testing cross-country- and cross-level invariances.
