A Correlation Analysis of Civil Culture and Socioeconomic Development in Taiwan
Unformatted Document Text:  8 indices for the 1983, 1993 and 2003 we followed the procedure Rice and Arnett (2001). First, the values for all the indicators were transformed into z-scores and ordered so that the low scores represented the less civic culture and high scores represented more civic culture. Next, we calculated mean z-score for each of the characteristics of a civic culture. Then, we gave the component indices equal weight in forming the overall civic culture rating because the theoretical literature contends that each of the components is an integral part of what makes a society civic (Putuam 1993, Rice & Arnett 2001). Table 2 displays the civic culture and Socioecomic Development z-scores for five cities over three time periods.

First, the values for all the indicators were transformed into z-scores and ordered so that
the low scores represented the less civic culture and high scores represented more civic
culture. Next, we calculated mean z-score for each of the characteristics of a civic
culture. Then, we gave the component indices equal weight in forming the overall civic
culture rating because the theoretical literature contends that each of the components is
an integral part of what makes a society civic (Putuam 1993, Rice & Arnett 2001). Table
