Validating an American scale in Hong Kong: the Center for Epidemiological Studies of Depression Scale (CESD)

Record type: Article

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.
