Two new book contributions are on their way since the last couple of months, a chapter on ideology and a chapter on measuring incomes

  • A methodological contribution about the reconstruction of standardized income scores is going to appear in Die deutsche Gesellschaft im Spiegel der Allgemeinen Bevölkerungsumfrage Sozialwissenschaften (ALLBUS). It discusses how standardised income scores can be computed from income measured from grouped income categories. It proposes a technique based on a generalization of the inverse mills ratio.
