This scales book is a classic in psychometrics. It is instrumental for survey researchers in the fields of advertising, marketing, consumer psychology, and other related fields that rely largely on attitudinal measures. My copy has gotten me through years of field research by helping provide testable, reliable scales.

Marketing Scales Handbook - Volume 6 (Single User Version)

Volume 6 of the Marketing Scales Handbook series is the perfect companion to Volume 5.  The book is not a revision of Volume 5 but instead contains reviews of predominately new scales that were published after the material in Volume 5 (2006 to 2009).  (Download sample.) 

The scales are for use with consumers or similar types of respondents such as viewers, patients, or citizens. To be included in the volume, the scales had to be composed of at least three items, have empirical evidence of their psychometric quality, and have been treated as reflective measures of the focal constructs by their users rather than formative measures. Using those general guidelines, hundreds of articles published in the top marketing journals during a four-year period (2006-2009) were examined. Ultimately, 682 scales were identified as meeting the stated criteria and were reviewed for the volume.

Volume 6 is only available in electronic form (*.pdf).  Once it is purchased and downloaded, it is viewed using Adobe Acrobat or the free Adobe Reader. It also allows the user to:
