ABSTRACT
Although ethnography has traditionally been regarded as high in validity, the assessment of reliability in anthropological field research is very difficult. Fortunately, forms of systematic data collection exist that lend themselves both to reliability testing and replication. The analysis of culture in terms of the high-concordance codes that compose systemic culture patterns is a way to generate reliable data and replicable studies. (High-concordance codes, systemic culture patterns, cultural consensus analysis, culture theory, reliability)
