ABSTRACT
Sociologists are often interested in subjective phenomena as values and attitudes. The measurement of these directly unobservable latent structures often presents difficulties. We typically face this problem in the research on social justice. The International Social Justice Project (ISJP) is an international and longitudinal comparative survey, where people's conceptions about social justice are measured on nationwide representative samples. We use Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) to measure justice principles and make longitudinal comparisons. SEM is a family of coherent multidimensional methods, which is particularly suitable to test models, that contain not only observed variables, but directly non observable latent variables. Moreover, in case of longitudinal comparison we are not only able to measure changes in attitudes, but also to test the equivalence of the structures lying behind the attitudes. Using the ISJP data from 1991 and 2008 and applying the method SEM, webuilt models containing both static and dynamic components. In the prior case, we tried to grasp how justice principles relate with each other in people's mind, while in the latter case we concentrated on the longitudinal changes of these principles.
