Derived Variable Note

Neighbourhood Cohesion. Adapted from Buckner's Neighbourhood Cohesion Instrument. See Buckner, J. C. (1988). "The development of an instrument to measure neighborhood cohesion." American Journal of Community Psychology 16(6): 771-791. Computed as the mean reverse-coded response (rounded to 1-decimal point) to the origin variables. Higher values represent greater cohesion, ranging from 1"lowest cohesion" to 5"highest cohesion". Note that Understanding Society includes only one 1 of 3 items mesuring attraction to the neighbourhood (SCOPNGBHF), 3 out of 6 items measuring neighbouring (SCOPNGBHD SCOPNGBHC SCOPNGBHH) and 4 out of 9 items measuring psychological sense of community (SCOPNGBHG SCOPNGBHA SCOPNGBHB SCOPNGBHE). To assure a good representation of all three domains in the summary score, the derived variable is set to -9 "missing" if there was item non-response for more than half the input variables in any of the three domains. Cronbach's Alpha is reported in the variable label.
