T. Neville Postlethwaite: Ten Points To Ensure That Cross-National Studies Are Of Good Quality

There are several cross-national studies in existence at the beginning of the 21st century. Some have very high standards of quality and others are of very questionable quality such that the results cannot be trusted. The aim of this short article is to highlight ten points that readers should look for in any study in order to be able to judge the technical soundness of the research. These include the aims, the target population, the sampling, the development, construction and pre-test (as well as the verification of the translations) of the instruments, data collection and handling, analyses, reports and archival access.
