The aging consumer : perspectives from psychology and economics by Aimee Leigh Drolet( Book )

18 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At present, about 45 million Americans are over the age of 65, and by 2020, one out of every six Americans will be 65 or older. These statistics are reflective of a worldwide phenomenon in developing and developed countries alike since the Industrial Revolution. This edited volume, written by experts in many fields, examines the economic and psychological research behind how aging consumers behave, make decisions, and choose in the marketplace. The book takes stock of what is known, identifies gaps and open questions, and outlines an agenda for future research. It covers topics from the individual to the societal level of analysis. --Book Jacket

Cognition and communication : judgmental biases, research methods, and the logic of conversation by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces social science researchers to the "logic of conversation" developed by Paul Grice, a philosopher of language, who proposed the cooperative principle and a set of maxims on which conversationalists implicitly rely. Norbert Schwarz applies this framework to a wide range of topics, including research on person perception, decision making, and the emergence of context effects in attitude measurement and public opinion research. Experimental studies reveal that the biases generally seen in such research are, in part, a function of violations of Gricean conversational norms. The author discusses implications for the design of experiments and questionnaires and addresses the socially contextualized nature of human judgment
Subjective well-being : an interdisciplinary perspective( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social information processing and survey methodology by Hans-J Hippler( Book )

11 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Survey researchers have long been aware that the way in which questions are asked determines the obtained responses. However, the exact processes that mediate response effects remained elusive. In the present volume, cognitive psychologists and survey methodologists explore the cognitive processes that underlie respondents' answers to survey questions. The contributors provide an introduction to information processing theories for survey researchers, review current knowledge of response effects in the light of recent theorizing in cognitive psychology, and report a number of experimental studies on question context and question wording. In combination, the chapters provide a theoretical framework for the analysis of response effects in surveys and raise a number of applied and theoretical issues that have so far not been addressed in cognitive psychology
Cognition, aging, and self-reports by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text provides an overview of age-related changes in cognitive functioning and explores the implications of these changes for the self-report of attitudes and behaviours. The contributors are researchers in cognitive ageing and survey methodology, and chapters are written to be accessible to non-specialists. The first part of the book provides a review of late 1990s cognitive ageing research, covering topics such as working memory, inhibition, autobiographical memory, metacognition and attention. A second section examines issues associated with ageing, language comprehension and interpersonal communication, while the final reviews research into age-related differences in survey responding.; Of particular interest is how age-related changes in cognitive and communiticative functioning influence the question-answering process in research situations. Experimental research illustrates that older and younger respondents are differentially affected by question order, question wording and other features of questionnaire design. As a result, many age-related differences in reported attitudes and behaviours may reflect age-related differences in the response process rather than differences in respondents' actual attitudes or behaviours. Implications for research design and psychological theorizing are addressed, and practical solutions are offered. As such, the book should be of interest not only to those in the fields of cognitive ageing and gerontology, but also to survey methodologists and researchers in public opinion, marketing, and related fields, who rely on respondents' answers to questions in their research
Context effects in social and psychological research by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

0 e The contributors to this book review our current knowledge of context effects in survey research, psychological testing, and social judgement. Drawing on recent developments in cognitive psychology, they offer theoretical accounts of the conditions that lead to the emergence of various context effects and report a number of new experimental studies. At stake now are clear, practical needs in the structuring of reliable tests, and a strong interest to develop a coherent theoretical framework to assess and scrutinize context effects, in addition to the desire to align some of the findings in survey research studies with the discoveries made in the information-processing field. This book attests to a fruitful dialogue between cognitive psychologists and survey researchers, as the cognitive processes initiated by question probes are really beginning to be understood and context effects classified and differentiated

Stimmung als Information : Untersuchungen zum Einfluss von Stimmungen auf die Bewertung des eigenen Lebens by Norbert Schwarz( Book )

6 editions published in 1987 in German and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daß Stimmungsschwankungen die Beurteilungen des eigenen Lebens beeinflussen können, ist eine Alltagserfahrung. Eine fundierte Analyse zur Rolle emotionaler Zustände in der Urteilsbildung liegt jetzt vor: Der Autor hat verschiedene Ansätze zur Wechselwirkung von Emotion und Kognition gegenübergestellt und in Labor- sowie Feldexperimenten getestet. Die Befunde haben gezeigt, daß Personen bei der Beurteilung ihrer Lebenszufriedenheit ihre momentane Stimmung als Information berücksichtigen und in der gleichen Weise wie eine andere, externe Information verarbeiten. Aus diesem Ergebnis leitet sich ein theoretischer Ansatz für die Wechselwirkung von Kognition und Emotion ab, der die informative Funktion emotionaler Zustände hervorhebt und in die Entwicklung eines Urteilsmodells zum subjektiven Wohlbefinden eingeht. Dieser Band sollte in der Bibliothek von Psychologen, Soziologen und Meinungsforschern stehen

Determining the value of non-marketed goods : economic, psychological, and policy relevant aspects of contingent valuation methods by R. J Kopp( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contingent valuation (CV) measures what is called passive use value or existence value. The CV method has been used to measure the benefits of environmental policy actions. CV measures of economic value rely on choice. In CV studies, choices are posed to people in surveys; analysts then use the responses to these choice questions to construct monetary measures of value. The specific mechanism used to elicit respondents' choices can take a variety of forms, including asking survey respondents whether they would purchase, vote, or pay for a program or some other well-defined object of choice. It can also be a direct elicitation of the amount each respondent would be willing to pay (WTP) to obtain an object of choice or the amount each respondent would be willing to accept (WTA) in compensation to give it up. This volume is composed of three sections. The first section provides background into the issues underlying the public and academic discussion regarding CV and the reliability of CV estimates of economic value. In addition, this section reviews the theory underlying the measurement of economic value and discusses those aspects of the theory most relevant to CV. The second section focuses on issues that have formed the core of the CV discussions including: sensitivity of WTP estimates to the size of the program offered, tests for theoretical consistency of CV results, and the sensitivity of results to context and numerous other features of the survey and its administration. The final section addresses the application of CV to actual economic valuation tasks and discusses the types of practical problems the CV researcher will encounter
