These indicators therefore contain considerable specific components. In psychological tests, this problem is generally less severe because these tests consist of 50 or more questions. In those cases, it may very well be that the systematic effects cancel each other out. In survey research, however, in which only two to four indicators are used, the same cannot be expected. We shall therefore explore an alternative procedure that allows us to avoid this problem. 3 Operationalization Using Reflective Indicators Varying Only by the Method The logical solution to this problem would be to avoid using different questions and instead use the same direct question repeatedly in order to increase the reliability of the composite scores.

For these basic concepts, one can formulate valid questions. In order to make this step simpler, we will first indicate how, for all these concepts, assertions can be formulated that represent them with certainty. In the next chapter, we will then show how these assertions can be transformed into questions. We start with illustrating the link between many concepts from the European Social Survey (ESS) and basic concepts of the social sciences. Then, we will discuss the basic structures of assertions, after which we will specify which forms of assertions can be used for basic concepts.
