Testimonial

The Marketing Scales Handbook is indispensible in identifying how constructs have been measured and the support for a measure's validity and reliability. I have used it since the beginning as a resource in my doctoral seminar and as an aid to my own research. An electronic version will make it even more accessible to researchers in Marketing and affiliated fields.

How much a person has selected a particular way to buy or use a product in order to save money in the long-run is measured with three Likert-type items.

A person’s expressed likelihood of giving money to a particular charity is measured using three, seven-point items.  Donating money is explicitly mentioned in the items but contributing other material or non-material resources are not mentioned.

The six, seven-point items in this scale measure a person’s expressed likelihood of engaging in behaviors related to saving money in the near future.  Four of the items are rather general but two are specific about ways to get more information to help save money.

This scale has four, seven-point Likert-type items that measure a person’s expectation that both his/her income and saving money will be better in the future compared to the present.

Three, seven-point items measure a person’s belief regarding the degree to which the family had enough money to pay for food and housing when he/she was growing up.

The scale has five, six-point items that measure how quickly and easily a person believes he/she could repay money taken from personal savings or charged to a credit card if it was used to pay for an emergency.

A person’s belief that he/she has the necessary financial resources to not only pay bills but also feel relatively wealthy is measured using three, seven-point Likert-type items.

The seven-point Likert-type scale has three items that measure the degree to which a person believes there would be a negative impact on the achievement of his/her long-term goals if money was drawn from savings that was set aside.

The scale employs eight, ten-point items to measure how stress-free and comfortable a person feels with respect to his/her financial condition.

This nine item, seven-point Likert-type scale measures a consumer’s chronic tendency to save money that is incorporated into his/her lifestyle.
