Description/Abstract

The construct validity of a Chinese-language version of the Center for Epi­
demiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D; Radloff, 1977) was tested on a sample of
138 Hong Kong Chinese married couples. Confirmatory factor analysis identified 2 fac­
tors: (a) depressive symptom factors and (b) interpersonal problem factors. Those factors
attained convergent, discriminant, and structural validity when evaluated against social
desirability. The CES-D also manifested nomological validity in terms of its significant
relationships with measures of life satisfaction and stressful life events.
