    cross-cultural study of the need for cognitive closure scale: Comparing its               

    structure in Croatia, Italy, the USA and the Netherlands. British Journal of    

    Social Psychology.

The sample sizes employed in this study range from 201 (Croatia) to 418 (Italy) participants. First-and second-order confirmatory factor analysis and multiple-group measurement invariance tests were performed using the LISREL-8 program (Joreskog and Sorbom, 1993). The analyses revealed that the factor structure of the scale was invariant across all samples, and that the best fitting model was one with two latent second-order factors, thus confirming results of previous studies (Kruglanski et al., 1997; Neuberg, Judice, & West, 1997).
