Equivalence in cross-national research

Adam Przeworski, Henry Teune

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    How can valid comparisons be made in crossnational research when so many terms and concepts differ in their meanings from country to country? In this paper the authors argue and illustrate the significant claim that by using equivalent indicators in different countries and relating them to identical indicators, the validity of cross-national research can be safeguarded. Only by combining cross-national and nation-specific indicators can reliable and valid assessments be made.
