What was the basis for the Personal Strengths multicultural norm groups?

Answer: Personal Strengths scores (sum of 0-1-2 ratings on the 20 Personal Strengths items) were averaged across all OASRs in the sample from each society and also for all OABCLs in the sample from each society. As detailed in Chapter 5, the omnicultural mean was then computed by averaging the means of the OASR Personal Strengths scores from 18 societies and separately for the means of the OABCL Personal Strengths scores from 11 societies. For both the OASR and OABCL, only Multicultural Norm Groups 1 and 2 were created, because no societies obtained a mean score >1 SD above the omnicultural mean.
