It is now clear that RWA should be analysed at the component level (aggression, conventionalism, and submission).  Although new scales are being developed, many rearchers have existing data sets using older versions of the RWA scale.  We have developed a 14-item scale that captures the RWA components based on Altemeyer’s (1996) version of the scale.  If you have data based on the 1996 RWA scale then you can use our scale to analyse the data at the component level.

We would also be pleased to hear from you if you use the scale in your analyses and in particular whether different DV’s show divergent patterns of correlation with the component scales.
