first of all - I would like to appreciate all the help I got here so far. However, another question is striking my mind at the moment and I would be more than happy to receive some hints on how to proceed.
What I'm trying to do is investigate whether a certain personality trait is associated with the part worth of an attribute level:
As an example, lets assume that we want to find out the relevance of "pay" for job choice (besides other factors).
The attribute "pay" shall be categorial with four articial levels (1500 $, 2000 $, 2500 $, 3000 $).
Besides the ACBC, we surveyed a person's career ambition (the degree to which a person consideres their career when choosing a job).
The question I would like to answer is the following: Is the path worth that is attributed to the 3000 $ pay (highest pay) correlated with the career ambition (in other words: Does a high career ambition relate to a higher path worth for 3000 $?). However, in order to do this, the path worths need to be comparable across respondents - is that right? Will the ZC Diffs do the trick? Or is that not possible to do?
Thank you for a reply on this issue.
