A Quarter-century of Reliability in Communication Content Analyses: Simple Agreement and Chance-corrected Reliability in Three Top Journals

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Study examines reliability reporting in representative samples of content analysis articles (N=581) in three major communication journals—including level and type of reliability assessment. Data from 1985-2010 show increasing reporting of chance-corrected reliability coefficients and reporting reliability for all variables. Results varied with the percentage of articles reporting both simple agreement and a reliability coefficient. Overall, 9% of articles reported at least one variable with reliability coefficient below the .70 “minimum standard.”
