Measuring Eco-Consumption Tendency As a Conjoint-Based Latent Variable

Eco-consumption tendency (ECT) is defined as the tendency to select eco-friendly options from an assortment. We propose a rating-based conjoint approach analyzed with Structural Equation Modeling as an alternative to multi-item self-report scales and measure ECT as a latent variable in two studies. Implications for measurement/consumer research are discussed.
