Description

Hi,

I'm not entirely sure whether I have interpreted this right, but it looks as if the scale for c_scghqk is incorrectly inversed. Higher response values across the GHQ-12 components denote a poorer overall score except for this variable where a lower score actually means a worse score. Do you know how this question might have been interpreted by respondents? Could it just be an error in the value labelling?

Thanks

Thanks for making us aware of this issue. The tool is correctly implemented, but the variable label should be turned around. Please see the full text version of the question in the M3 self-completion questionnaire or e.g. the M4 CASI questionnaire.

Scghqk. GHQ: believe in self-worth
