Overview

The Handbook of Marketing Scales, Third Edition, represents a clear and user-friendly collection of multi-item, self-report measures developed and frequently used in consumer behavior and marketing research.

Key Features

  • More than 150 scales are included in the Handbook. Many scales were originally published in marketing and consumer journals, and including them in one volume helps reduce the time it takes researchers to locate instruments for survey research.
  • More than 70 new scales have been added to the Third Edition. New scales were selected based upon actual usage and citations by researchers in articles where a major objective was scale development.
  • Each scale is prefaced by the same information. Details are provided of construct, description, development, samples, validity, scores, sources, references, and other evidence.
  • The book includes a number of measures that have been used in several studies. The volume serves as a guide to the literature and may spur further refinement of existing measures in terms of item reduction, dimensionality, reliability, and validity.

This Handbook also aims to help identify areas where measures are needed, thus encouraging further development of valid measures of consumer behavior and marketing constructs.

Editorial Reviews

Prof. Dr. Lucia A. Reisch
This is a handbook of scales that are used in empirical marketing and consumer behaviour research. In seven chapters, this third edition mirrors the six major areas of marketing mix and consumer behaviour variables as well as a general introduction. The six areas are: (1) traits and individual difference variables; (2) values and goals; (3) involvement, information processing, and affect; (4) reactions to marketing stimuli; (5) attitudes about the performance of business firms, satisfaction and post-purchase behaviour, social agencies, and the mar- ketplace; and (6) sales, sales management, organizational behaviour, and interfirm–intrafirm issues. For each scale, the following information is provided: construct, description, and development of the scale, the samples used in development, validity, scores, source, and references and last but not least, the actual scale items and dimensions to which they belong.
