This chapter provides an overview of measures and experimental manipulations developed and used in research on social status. Our goal is to provide researchers with a resource for identifying and selecting appropriate self-report and other-report scales, behavioral measures, and experimental manipulation tools for their future empirical work on status. We provide a brief summary of each tool and how it was developed, noting, where relevant, its original source, reliability, validity, and frequency of use. We conclude with recommendations for how researchers might select among the reviewed measures and manipulations.
