Of the paper, Roger says: this was a collaboration with colleagues in Edinburgh and the data come from the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 study which is producing a lot of interesting data about ageing and psychology.  The paper shows the value of applying alternative methods of analysis to large datasets; in this case, Mokken scaling revealed some new dimension to attitudes to ageing not seen using factor and Rasch analysis.
