Designing a Model for Measuring the Amount of Young Individuals’ National Identity

Authors : Zohreh Gharibiyan

Abstract: With the objective to design a model for measuring the amount of national identity, this study explains the relationship between the common believes, historical continuity, active identity, common land and location and common public culture with national identity in the community of students at Golestan University. This applied studyle collects the descriptive information by Delphi survey technique as well as investigating the significant correlation or lack of correlation of main hypotheses. Statistical population of this study consists of 130 students at Golestan University and 124 students were selected for questioning by random sampling and through Cochran’s formula. In this study, the normality test for dependent and independent variables, the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test has been used. Given the amount of computational significant level, the variables of common believes, historical continuity, active identity, common land and location, common public culture, the hypothesis of normal distribution of sample is not rejected. The Pearson correlation coefficient has been used in order to test the hypotheses. All variables had the significant and direct correlation with the national identity and this correlation was confirmed at significant level 99%. The Factor Analysis Method based on new and advanced method of Partial Least Squares Structural equation (VPLS) has been used in order to analyze and investigate the more important coefficients and factors, estimate the coefficients of independent variables and determine the effectiveness of each of independent variables on each other. The amount of computational coefficient of determination indicates that changes in dependent variable with independent variables are explained and described in this study with estimation 89%. Result of conducting this study has indicated that there is a significant correlation between the national identity and independent variables (common believes, historical continuity, active identity, common land and common public culture).
