Abstract

Thirty items taken from Pedersen's (1979) Privacy Questionnaire were translated into Turkish. Using data from a group of 104 Turkish students, 26 of Pedersen's items and 4 new items were selected to be used in this study. Factor analysis of responses by 375 Turkish students to this list of 30 items confirmed Pedersen's (1979) six-dimensional model of privacy. Scale scores were computed for these dimensions. An analysis of these scores indicated differences in the mean frequencies of preferences for each type of privacy. The results are discussed with respect to sex and culture.
