Beyond cultural boundary: An empirical study of the third culture theory
Unformatted Document Text:  Third Culture Theory 10 names and email addresses of one thousand and four hundred thirty-nine international couples. Although there are some couples for which both husband and wife registered their email addresses, the vast majority of members only registered one email address that is either husband’s or wife’s. This indicates that in most cases, one of the couple is an actual member who registered one’s email address and spouse’s name as required. The official language used in this homepage is English, however, for non English- speaking members, eleven languages are supported by the website (Germany, French, and Japanese, and so on). There is no information in the website about how many people use each of these twelve languages. The questionnaire used in this study was only in English. The questionnaire was sent to half of the identified email addresses (seven hundred and twenty couples) selected by systematic sampling from this website. Respondents filled out the questionnaires and were expected to reply to the researcher. To get the responses from the couple, the questionnaire indicated that both husband and wife were encouraged to respond. If a couple registered two individual email addresses, each one got the questionnaire individually. A total of 215 respondents participated in this study. The response rate was 30 percent. Among these, only three couples were identified in the study. The others are individual husbands and wives. This reconfirmed that most of the members are individual husband or wife, not couples. Therefore, the unit of analysis is individuals, not couples, in this study. Measuring Level of Third Culture

names and email addresses of one thousand and four hundred thirty-nine international
couples. Although there are some couples for which both husband and wife registered
their email addresses, the vast majority of members only registered one email address that
is either husband’s or wife’s. This indicates that in most cases, one of the couple is an
actual member who registered one’s email address and spouse’s name as required.
The official language used in this homepage is English, however, for non English-
speaking members, eleven languages are supported by the website (Germany, French,
and Japanese, and so on). There is no information in the website about how many people
use each of these twelve languages. The questionnaire used in this study was only in
English.
The questionnaire was sent to half of the identified email addresses (seven
hundred and twenty couples) selected by systematic sampling from this website.
Respondents filled out the questionnaires and were expected to reply to the researcher. To
get the responses from the couple, the questionnaire indicated that both husband and wife
were encouraged to respond. If a couple registered two individual email addresses, each
one got the questionnaire individually.
A total of 215 respondents participated in this study. The response rate was 30
percent. Among these, only three couples were identified in the study. The others are
individual husbands and wives. This reconfirmed that most of the members are individual
husband or wife, not couples. Therefore, the unit of analysis is individuals, not couples, in
this study.
