Abstract

It is suggested that cross cultural research examined using aggregate analysis often results in superficial or meaningless evaluations of cultural differences. A more realistic approach appears to be individual level analysis to examine how one group of individuals differs from another. This paper reports an application of the multi-attribute attitude model at the individual level on Asian consumers, to highlight the richness of individual analysis and advocates its appropriateness for ethnic research on consumer behavior.
