Gender Differences in Attitudes on Gender Equality. The study analyzes attitudes on gender equality within a family in Slovakia. Specifically, binomial and ordered probit estimation is used to identify demographical characteristics that influence the likelihood of selecting a specific answer to an attitudinal question. In addition, marginal effects on statistically significant variables are reported in order to demonstrate the impact of these variables. The results show that differences in opinions on gender related issues between men and women are present on majority of questions analyzed, supporting views of the presence of traditional role division within a family. In addition to gender, education is another strong predictor of attitudes on gender roles to some extent offsetting gender differences. The presence of traditional views on gender roles may represent an obstacle to the enforcement of anti-discrimination legislation. Sociológia 2010, Vol. 42 (No. 6: 603-618)

Opinions of Culturally Diverse Sample of Asians on Wisdom. The development of expert theories of wisdom shows a general shift from emphasizing the role of cognitive processes to broader definitions, which perceive wisdom as a way of integration of cognitive skills, emotional abilities and personality. Within the Eastern concepts of wisdom, its spiritual part is often mentioned. Research studies of public opinions about wisdom, conducted on a Western sample and confronted with pioneer findings obtained on non-Western samples show that it may result appropriate to contemplate the concept of Western wisdom as dominantly based on rationality, knowledge and reason and the Eastern approaches as the ones emphasizing emotions, intuition and transience. The sample of 646 students from culturally and religiously differentiated regions of Asia documents the variability of answers to the scale-type inventory questions and the sample introduces us to the diversity in basic parameters of Eastern understanding of wisdom.

How to Compare Means of Latent Variables across Countries and Waves: Testing for Invariance Measurement. An Application Using Eastern European Societies. Comparative social survey research is exponentially growing, more and more data being available at longitudinal and cross-national levels. When unobservable concepts are involved, the analysis of this kind of data poses the issue of measurement invariance (Are the concepts equivalent across countries and longitudinally?). The aim of this paper is to draw a clear picture of measurement invariance (MI) test via multiple-group confirmatory factor analysis (MGCFA) using AMOS 16 software. According to the literature this is a necessary step before latent mean comparison. First, I discuss the concept of measurement invariance, and then we present the most important features and issues related to the MGCFA. The main part of the paper is dedicated to presenting a step by step procedure to test for MI using AMOS VB.NET. In order to facilitate understanding, all steps are logically described; also, data and syntaxes are provided. To illustrate the procedure, I analyze the “sexual permissiveness”, as it measured in two large-scale surveys (EVS and WVS). I focus on the case of those 19 former communist countries included in these surveys, for which the available measurement covers at least three points in time, during the 1990-2009 period. To measure the “sexual permissiveness”, four items are used: how justifiable are homosexuality, prostitution, abortion, and divorce. Scalar invariance of “sexual permissiveness” scale is proved for most countries, so means and relationships involving this value can be meaningfully interpreted. Finally, we discuss some alternatives for presenting the means of latent variables. Sociológia 2010, Vol. 42 (No. 6: 639-669)

Before and After: the Phenomenon of Czechoslovakia’s “Velvet” Revolution in Narratives by its “Youngest Witnesses”. Autobiographical narratives of childhood often constitute a part of the research in social sciences, yet there is a long-term lack of methodological debate on this subject. It is clear that autobiographical narratives themselves are not objective records of the individuals' memories. In relation to this, when focusing on adults reminiscing specifically on an era of their childhood, researchers have to keep in mind that their subjects do not merely construct an image of the past - simultaneously, they construct an image of their own childhood as well. The aim of this paper is to consider the basic characteristics of this specific type of data by means of analyzing the narratives of the “youngest” witnesses of the period delineated by the revolution of 1989 in Czechoslovakia. Also, it reveals common traits in the way the witnesses construct their narratives in relation to the phenomenon of the “Velvet” revolution. Thus, the collected material does not only constitute a means for the analysis of autobiographical narratives of childhood as a special type of data, but also of the aspects and features of the myth of revolution of 1989 and its place in the interpretation of the contemporary Slovak society.
