Notes

Abstract: This study analyzes in a longitudinal context the dimensional conceptualization of legitimacy set forth by Booth and Seligson in 'The Legitimacy Puzzle in Latin America,' in which they found that legitimacy was composed of six different dimensions: regime institutions, regime principles, local government, political actors, political community, and regime performance. This study first tests whether the evaluation level of each dimension of legitimacy remains constant. The second part of this study tests whether the dimensional structure of legitimacy remains stable over time using 2004 and 2008 Costa Rica Survey data, identifying issues that researchers who conduct longitudinal studies under this dimensional framework should address in order to yield empirically valid results, and challenging assumptions made in recent longitudinal studies.
