Few studies have attempted to empirically verify the concept of corporate social responsibility, although it has been discussedfor decades. This study is a multidimensional scaling (MDS) analysis of a sample of 549 persons that suggests that corporate social responsibility can be viewed as a three-dimensional construct. The three dimensions include economic-noneconomiclhuman outcomes, ethical considerations, and consequences for relevant interest groups.
