An evaluation of the existing psychological instruments in the GGS and propositions for a new module
NOVA, 2014,
URL, JabRef BibTex, Abstract
Aims: This work evaluates the psychological measures in the wave-I of the GGS and makes recommendations as to which items should be excluded (about 20%) and which should be retained, as well as suggesting additional psychological measures in future waves of the GGS. Wave I measures: We evaluate the items that tap the following psychological concepts: subjective health, self-reported morbidity, locus of control, depression, loneliness, and satisfaction with various life domains. Our evaluation and recommendation: Because the health, morbidity, and satisfaction measures seem highly useful to study topics of key interest in the GGS, and are widely used in the literature, we recommend that these be retained.
