問: 為什麼五項信任及信心指標不採用同一量尺? 
Q:Why don't we use the same rating scale to measure the five indicators of trust and confidence?

答: 民研計劃的五項信任及信心指標調查起源不同、參考文獻也不同,因此便採用了不同的量尺──兩項巿民對政府信任程度的提問使用五等量尺,三項巿民信心程度的提問使用二分量尺,可謂各有千秋。因此,雖然五項指標的起跌分析可以同步進行,絕對數值的分析便應該分成兩種理解。一般而論,由於二分量尺沒有中間值,正負讀數通常會高於從五等量尺抽取的正負數字。(初版:2006年5月2日新聞公報之附加資料)
A: HKUPOP's five indicator surveys of trust and confidence have different origins and literature references, thus different measurement scales. The three indicators on people's trust in governments use a five-point scale, while the three on confidence use a dichotomous scale. There are pros and cons for both scales, but the important point is that the absolute values obtained from different scales are conceptually different, although trend analyses should be equally valid. Generally speaking, figures obtained from dichotomous scales are higher than those collapsed from five-point scales, because they do not have midpoints.
