|Title:||Mental Models of Poverty in Developing Nations: A Causal Mapping Analysis Using a Canada-Philippines Contrast||Contributor(s):||Hine, Donald William (author); Montiel, Cristina Jayme (author); Cooksey, Ray Wagner (author); Lewko, John H (author)||Publication Date:||2005||DOI:||10.1177/0022022104273652||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3583||Abstract:||Causal mapping was used to compare poverty activists and non-activists from Canada and the Philippines (N = 80) in terms of their beliefs about the causes of poverty in developing nations. The causal maps varied as a function of both activist status and country of residence. Activists included more external societal causes in their maps than non-activists, whereas non-activists included more individualistic and internal societal causes. In terms of map structure, Filipino activists included significantly more causal links in their maps than members of the other three groups. A cluster analysis on distance ratios, an index of dissimilarity among the maps, produced three clusters dominated by Filipino non-activists, Canadian non-activists, and Filipino activists, respectively, and a fourth cluster that included a heterogeneous mix of respondents from all four groups. Implications for public education, the effective coordination of antipoverty interventions, and methodological issues related to causal mapping are discussed.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology, 36(3), p. 283-303||Publisher:||Sage Publications Inc||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||1552-5422
