description:
This 10-item scale assesses the perception of stress, that is, the degree to which an individual appraises situations as stressful. [1] For each item, participants indicate how often they felt or thought that way in the past month using a 5-category scale (never, almost never, sometimes, fairly often, very often). The PSS yields a single overall perceived stress score by summing the numerical weights of each item, after reverse scoring 4 of the items. Internal consistency is good with Cronbach’s alpha of .84 or greater, and construct validity has been demonstrated, as the PSS correlates significantly with other me asures of stress appraisal.[1] [1] Cohen S, Kamarck T, Mermelstein R: A global measure of perceived stress.
