Social researchers do not use a consistent<br /> nomenclature to distinguish between the two.<br /> A scale is a measure in which a researcher captures the intensity, direction, level, or potency of a<br /> variable construct. It arranges responses or observations on a continuum or in series of categories. A scale can use a single indicator or multiple indicators.<br /> An index is a measure in which a researcher adds or combines several distinct indicators of a construct into a single score. The composite scores is often a simple sum of the multiple indicators. Indexes are often measured at the interval or ratio level.<br /> Researchers sometimes combine thee features of scales and indexes in a single measure. This is common when a researcher has a several indicators that are scales (i.e. that measure intensity or direction). The researcher then adds these indicators together to yield a single score, thereby creating an index.<br /> Types of Scales<br /> A scale refers to any series of items that are arranged progressively according to value or magnitude, into which an item can be placed according to its quantification. In other words, a scale is a continuous spectrum or series of categories.<br /> It is traditional to classify scales of measurement on the basis of the mathematical comparisons that are allowable with these scales. Four types of scales are nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio.<br /> Nominal Scale<br /> A nominal scale is the one in which the numbers or letters assigned to objects serve as labels for identification or classification. This measurement scale is the simplest type. With nominal data, we are collecting information on a variable that naturally or by design can be grouped into two or more categories that are mutually exclusive, and collectively exhaustive.<br /> Nominal scales are the least powerful of the four scales. They suggest no order or distance relationship and have no arithmetic origin. Nevertheless, if no other scale can be used, one can almost always one set of properties into a set of equivalent classes.<br /> Ordinal Scale<br /> Ordinal scales include the characteristics of the nominal scale plus an indicator of order. If a is greater than b and b is greater than c, then a is greater than c. The use of ordinal scale implies a statement of “greater than” or “less than” without stating how much greater or less. Other descriptors can be: “superior to,” “happier than,” “poorer than,” or “above.”<br /> Interval Scale<br /> Interval scales have the power of nominal and ordinal scales plus one additional strength: they incorporate the concept of equality of interval (the distance between 1 and 2 equals the distance between 2 and 3). For example, the elapsed time between 3 and 6 A. M. equals the time between 4 and 7 A. M.<br /> One cannot say, however, 6 A.M. is twice as late as 3 A.M. because “zero time” is an arbitrary origin.<br /> In the consumer price index, if the base year is 1983, the price level during 1983 will be set arbitrarily as<br /> 100. Although this is an equal interval measurement scale, the zero point is arbitrary.<br /> Ratio Scale<br /> Ratio scales incorporate all thee powers of the previous scales plus the provision for absolute zero or origin. Ratio data represent the actual amounts of variable. Measures of physical dimensions such as weight, height, distance, and area are the examples. The absolute zero represents a point on the scale where there is an absence of the given attribute. If we hear that a person has zero amount of money, we understand the zero value of the amount.<br /> Interval Scale<br /> Interval scales have the power of nominal and ordinal scales plus one additional strength: they incorporate the concept of equality of interval (the distance between 1 and 2 equals the distance between 2 and 3). For example, the elapsed time between 3 and 6 A. M. equals the time between 4 and 7 A. M.<br /> One cannot say, however, 6 A.M. is twice as late as 3 A.M. because “zero time” is an arbitrary origin.
