'When the Whole is Greater Than the Sum of its Parts: On the Conceptualization and Measurement of Populist Attitudes' by Alexander Wuttke, Christian Schimpf, Harald Schoen
Populism is a multi-dimensional concept that is characterized by the simultaneous presence of its concept components. Not all procedures to aggregate the concept's subdimensions into populism scores account for the defining characteristic of populist attitudes as an attitudinal syndrome. Hence, this Shiny Web Application enables users to assess the sensitivity of substantive findings to the different operationalization strategies discussed in the study.
Interacting with the study's data study, you can compute various estimates of interest employing the Sartori, Goertz and Bollen operationalization strategies.
To create this app, we drew on the insights of various contributors on Stackoverflow. These sources are listed in the replication code for this app. We also want to thank Bruno Castanho Silva and colleagues for allowing us to draw on their replication dataset.
This page contains information on the datasets that were used to create the plots, the weights that were applied in the plots in the second panel, and information on the replication material.
Where applicable (and available), we applied weights for the plots shown in the section 'How many populists?' These weights are:
