Operationalization & Methods

  • Yanick KemayouEmail author


Having presented both the research model and the hypotheses in the last sections, this chapter is the first of the two empirically oriented chapters in the thesis. The next sections focus on the introduction and description of the different measures used to run the subsequent analysis. The first section of the chapter introduces the German Socioeconomic Panel which supplies the data. The second section discusses the operationalization issues associated with measuring socioeconomic background. Then the operationalization of the dependent and control variables is discussed. The last two sections of the chapter discuss empirical strategies to measure the 4-group classification of organizational leaders and the methods chosen for the analysis.
