Social Limitation Structural Equation Model 13
Participants (over the age of 18) were interviewed for approximately 20 minutes
by undergraduate research assistants (n = 22) between October 2000, and May 2001.
(No statistical differences were found in variables of interest between earlier and later
participants.) The research assistants received in-class briefing and training (three
sessions of two hours each), and were required to pilot interview five respondents (not
included in the final sample) before beginning study interviews. Interviewers were
instructed to call between the hours of 4-9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and late
morning at weekends. Interviewers were provided an interview protocol that detailed
exactly how they were to conduct interviews, and how they should record the outcomes.
Out of a total of 1123 telephone contacts, 512 respondents (response rate =
46%) were interviewed, but for the purposes of this investigation, only the responses of
Anglo-Americans (n = 389; 76% of participants) were analyzed. This subset included
157 males and 232 females with a mean age of 48-years (age range = 18-91 years),
and with an average level of education of associate degree or higher.
Instrument
All items (except the demographic questions) were closed-ended and asked
participants to respond on a 5-point Likert-like measure (e.g., 1 = very strongly disagree;
5 = very strongly agree). The questionnaire included items asking for age, sex, level of
schooling, ethnicity, work-status. Additionally, there were several indices measuring
variables of interest. Initially, these items and indices were constructed based on vitality
theory and allied research. Subsequent to data collection, the relevant items were
subjected to reliability analysis and also to factor analysis. To be included in the data
