Attitudinal Polarization Measurement Through (Ordered) Latent Class Analysis
Sociology. SOC. Высшая школа экономики , 2015. No. WP BRP 66/SOC/2015.
This paper presents a new approach to the measurement of attitudinal polarization for cross-national or repeated cross-sectional studies. The proposed approach is a two-stage one. At the first step, order-constrained Latent Class Analysis (LCA) is used to identify a categorical latent construct underlying a set of observed items. Basing on the best LCA solution, class membership is assigned for each individual in the sample. At the second step, a broad family of categorical polarization indices may be computed for that categorical latent scale in respect to any grouping variable of interest (e.g., country of living, or wave of study). The data from the 4th wave of the European Values Study are used, and polarization between survival and self-expression values in 28 European countries is measured. The resulting polarization scores are used to test a hypothesis assuming positive aggregate-level association between values polarization and support for radical right parties and ideologies

The Stability Of The Value Typology Of Europeans: Testing Invariance With Confirmatory Latent Class Analysis
The Stability Of The Value Typology Of Europeans: Testing Invariance With Confirmatory Latent Class Analysis / Высшая школа экономики. Series SOC "Sociology". 2014. No. 51.
Unlike variable-centered measures, validity and stability of typologies have been rarely studied. Magun, Rudnev and Schmidt [in review] developed a value typology of the European population using data from the 4 th round of the European Social Survey. The value classes showed heuristic power in the comparison of different parts of the European population, countries in particular, enabling more differentiated ...

Functional impairment continues to represent a major challenge in schizophrenia. Surprisingly, patients with schizophrenia report a level of happiness comparable with control subjects, even in the face of the prominent functional deficits, a finding at odds with evidence indicating a positive relation between happiness and level of functioning. In attempting to reconcile these findings, we ...

Within and Between-Country Value Diversity in Europe: Latent Class Analysis / Высшая школа экономики. Series SOC "Sociology". 2012. No. 06/SOC/2012.
Country averages are the most popular instrument for studying cross-national variability of values, and within-country value diversity is rarely taken into consideration in such studies. Furthermore, traditional value indices only measure distinct value priorities, but do not allow researchers to grasp a system of value preferences. In order to find an alternative way to study ...
