A five-item scale is used to measure the degree to which a person describes one's self as having more influence over family decision-making than one's spouse. It is a global measure because it is not specific to any one type of decision. Responses were recorded on a 100-point constant sum scale for each item. The 100 points are to be divided between oneself and one's spouse to represent relative influence in the relationship over family decisions.

The scale uses several statements to measure the degree to which a person tends to resolve conflicts with his/her spouse by use of reason and negotiation rather than coercive means.
