Statistical models arc presented for the analysis of attribution data (Kelley, 1967, 1973; McArthur, 1972) that are more appropriate than previously used methods and that enable researchers to address a broader range of theoretical issues. These new models allow researchers to determine the separate and joint influence of consensus, distinctiveness, and consistency information on attributions to the person, stimulus, and circumstance. The techniques are illustrated on several data sets (Hewstone & Jaspars,1987; Hilton & Jaspars,1987;Jaspars.1983; McArthur,1972), and an appendix is included describing how researchers can fit these models using a computing package such as SPSS-X (Norusis, 1985).
