Sample text

If we want for example to ask about the nature of basic cleavages in two or more countries, and foreign policy is important in one, we need to see how a dimension which includes it looks in the other. Only equal weighting of each domain allows that. This is also in line with our earlier decision to give equal treatment to each domain. 11 INTERPRETATION OF FACTOR-ANALYTIC RESULTS Having discussed detailed applications, we should add some considerations about how we generally interpret factor analyses of this kind of data.

If we are able to talk about the way parties are developing and whether they are moving together or distancing themselves from each other, as commentators and politicians frequently do, we need to have some measure of the positions which parties take up over time. Present positions can be compared with past positions to estimate the degree and direction of ideological movement, and the current distance between them compared with former distances to see whether it is wider or smaller. The manifestos/platforms/ equivalents, as authoritative summaries of policy, represent overall party positions better than anything else.

The important modification to conventional choice ideas implied by the hypothesis of modified office seeking, and of competition as relative saliency rather than direct confrontation, is thus supported by previous analyses. The clear-cut and plausible results tell in favour of using relative emphases in coding rather than contrasting policies. S. necessarily works elsewhere but it is more likely to do so than otherwise untested schemes, and its general relevance has been confirmed by the successful comparative analysis reported below.
