Abstract
Osnovni cilj ovog istraživanja bio je konstruirati upitnik generalnih ideoloških orijentacija, te provjeriti njegovu dimenzionalnost i osnovne metrijske karakteristike. U prilog potencijalnoj valjanosti ovog mjernog instrumenta, drugi cilj bio je ispitati neke sociodemografske korelate generalnih ideoloških orijentacija te eventualne razlike u istima kod slobodnih građana i građana koji trenutno služe zatvorsku kaznu. Konstruirani upitnik ideoloških orijentacija i upitnik osnovnih sociodemografskih varijabli su primijenjeni na djelomično prigodnom uzorku kojeg je sačinjavao ukupno 181 ispitanik oba spola (96 slobodnih građana, 85 osoba trenutno na odsluženju zatvorske kazne) te prosječne dobi od 37,5 godina. Rezultati istraživanja ukazali su da upitnik generalnih ideoloških orijentacija pokazuje jednofaktorsku strukturu, te da opća mjera lijeve ideološke ima zadovoljavajuću pouzdanost i osjetljivost, odnosno, opravdavanost korištenja u daljnje istraživačke svrhe. Sociodemografski profil zatvorenika u odnosu na građane koji nisu kažnjavani zatvorskom kaznom se značajno razlikovao s obzirom na više ispitivanih varijabli, a značajnim korelatima generalnih ideoloških orijentacija pokazali su se razina obrazovanja ispitanika i religioznost. Nadalje, rezultati su pokazali da postoji značajna razlika u generalno lijevoj ideološkoj orijentaciji između slobodnih građana i zatvorenika, odnosno, zatvorenici pokazuju nižu razinu lijeve orijentacije u odnosu na slobodne građane.

The main aim of this research was to construct a general ideological orientations questionnaire and to find out its dimensionality and basic metric characteristics. In order to contribute to the validity of the instrument, the second aim was to examine certain sociodemographic correlates of general ideological orientations and possible difference in it between the free citizens and those serving sentence in prison. The constructed ideological orientations questionnaire was applied on a sample consisting of 181 participants of both sexes (96 free citizens, 85 prisoners) with the average age of 37.5. The results of this research have indicated that the questionnaire shows unidimensional structure and that the general measure of the left ideological orientation has a satisfying reliability and discriminability, meaning that it justifies the further usage of the instrument for study purposes. Prisoners and free citizens were significantly different in their sociodemographic profile in numerous sociodemographic characteristics. Likewise, significant correlates of general ideological orientations were the level of participants’ education and participant’s religious stance. Furthermore, the results have shown that there is a significant difference in the general left ideological orientation between the free citizens and prisoners, that is, the prisoners have shown a lower level of the left wing orientation in relation to free citizens.
