Unidimensional measure of general environmental behaviour (with assessment of a range of actions)
Statements are answered with the frequency with which participants engage in the behaviour: ‘never’, ‘seldom’, ‘occasionally’, ‘often’, ‘very often’, or ‘NA’. Several of the statements are reverse coded. In analysis, ‘never’, ‘seldom’, and ‘occasionally’ should be combined as indicators of environmentally unfriendly behaviours. ‘Often’ and ‘always’ should then be combined to indicate pro-environmental behaviours
Availability of data
Moderately resource demanding
Pro-environmental attitude is measured by a 12 scale approach. Each scale reflects a different dimension of environmental attitudes. Data collection is done using a questionnaire consisting of several questions per scale. The questionnaire can be shared with participants either online or physically.
