description:
The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) is designed to measure the degree to which situations in one's life are appraised as stressful. Designed for use with community samples with at least a high school education, the PSS is a 14-item global measure of the levels of stress experienced in the last month. Items measure the extent to which respondents find their lives unpredictable, uncontrollable and overloading. Administration of the scale has proven it to possess substantial reliability and validit y, and to be a potential tool for predicting the role of appraised stress levels in etiology of disease and behavioral disorders. Scoring information: Items 4,5,6,7,9,10 and 13 are scored in the reverse direction for the purpose of creating a total score. Total score (PSSTOTAL) is then obtained by summing across all items. Reverse scoring is dropped from the dataset after the total score is created. Original scoring on all individual items is retained.
