What kind of measures do sociologists use to calculate prejudice other giving a person an implicit association test?


Essentially prejudice depends on how you divide people into "us" and "them" categories. There are various types of scales used (e.g., Likert-type scales and Bogardus social distance scale).

These sources might be helpful:
