Abstract:Data is reported that compared the convergent validity (e.g. the agreement between decomposed and holistic strategies), the temporal stability and the external validity (the agreement between a decision strategy and an objective criterion) for decomposed and holistic judgments from two popular multi-criteria decision making techniques, Saaty's (1977, 1980) Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and SMARTS, on a variety of dependent measures. Results indicate that the generality of DAC is indeed dependent upon the choice of the criterion variable.
