Based upon the theoretical framework proposed by Nebel and Arbesu-Verduzco (in this issue) about common good and its indicators, we summarily expound an instrument designed for measuring common good and social dynamics that was applied in the municipality of Atlixco, Puebla, and then we discuss a couple of models – Model 1 and Model 2 – arranged after it. We report that Model 1, the result of said application, presents some issues in spite of having good values of reliability. Hence, in an effort to enhance the initial instrument we show that Model 2, an adaptation of Model 1, presents a good fit plus good internal consistency. These results, then, serve an auxiliary purpose toward the validation of the instrument for future applications.
